Recent police reports and arrests in Fredericksburg:
1000 block Wicklow Dr, 9/15 9:50 pm. An officer observed a white Infiniti traveling on Fall Hill Avenue and recognized the driver as the suspect in a shooting incident that occurred at the Grapevine Café on June 9, 2012. The officer followed the vehicle onto Wicklow Drive and took the driver into custody on the pending warrants. Due to a strong odor of marijuana emanating from the driver at the time of his arrest, the officer then obtained a warrant to search the vehicle. The search yielded a number of small bags containing marijuana and a pistol that was hidden under the hood of the Infiniti. Lance Durante, 23, of Spotsylvania was arrested on the outstanding warrants charging him with reckless handling of a firearm and discharging a firearm in a public place; he was additionally charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, carrying a concealed weapon, and altering the serial number of a firearm. Durante was incarcerated at the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.
