Albemarle Police are asking for your help to track down a man they say is considered armed and dangerous.
They are searching for Uriah Lofton of Esmont. He is wanted for cocaine possession, fleeing police and brandishing a firearm. He has been seen in both Esmont and Charlottesville within the last 24 hours and should not be approached.
“He has displayed an extreme desire to stay away from us or to not be caught by police, so he will stop at nothing, at this point it would appear, to not be taken into custody and that puts the citizens in danger because he will do what he has to do to get away,” said Cpl. Steve Wilkins.
If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 434-977-4000
