SALISBURY, N.C. (WBTV) - After almost an almost month-long search, fugitive David Lee Winecoff was arrested Nov. 6 by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety tried to arrest him Oct. 21 for a parole violation, but officers say he refused to get out of the truck they found him in.

Winecoff then put the truck in gear and tried to hit the officer before speeding off, officials said.

Salisbury officers issued a warrant for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

Multiple law enforcement agencies spent the next few weeks searching for him. They found two people -- Miranda Dillard Head and Timothy Lee Loflin – were helping Winecoff. Both were arrested and charged with accessory after the fact.

Winecoff was found at his home Nov. 6.

He was given a $350,000 secured bond.
