An elusive felon busted 16 years ago for trying to sell 25 pounds of marijuana in New Jersey was captured Tuesday in Jamaica, where he has been making a living as a DJ.
Davey Scott attempted to sell the pot to an undercover detective with the Bergen County prosecutor’s office narcotics task force in December 2001, authorities said. After posting bond, he failed to show up for a court appearance in early 2004, and cops have been trying to track him down ever since.
Investigators found Scott, 48, in Kingston, where he works as “DJ Tallman.”
Prosecutors were granted the right to extradite Scott to the U.S. to face charges stemming from the 2001 arrest. He was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, aggravated assault on a police officer and hindering apprehension.
