Oak Hill woman arrested after avoiding capture for six months

FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va. — A fugitive from Oak Hill on the run for six months is in custody, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday afternoon.

Trisha Hancock, 27, of Oak Hill, is wanted in connection with three felony charges for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

An anonymous tip led deputies to a home on Crawford Street in Oak Hill, where she was taken into custody without incident.

Hancock was under investigation by the Central West Virginia Drug Task Force when the charges were originally filed.

She was arraigned in Fayette County Magistrate Court. Bond is set at $25,000.
