An out-of-state man wanted on a fugitive warrant was arrested in the parking lot of a rural Johnston County church. On April 14th around 12:15pm, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a suspicious vehicle at the Clement Baptist Church at 180 Lassiter Road, Four Oaks.
A deputy arrived and located Robert Anthony Burns, 35, of Milford, Delaware in the vehicle. A routine background check determined Burns was wanted on a fugitive probation violation warrant from the Delaware Department of Corrections.
Burns was arrested without incident and held in the Johnston County Jail without bond pending extradition.
A 2016 Ford passenger car he was operating was impounded.
