A fugitive on the run, Ronaldo Maurice Hodges, 37 of Rome, was arrested this week after a traffic stop resulted in police finding a large amount of methamphetamine and marijuana.

Reports said that the traffic stop was conducted after an officer saw a brake light out and then improperly used a merge lane on Dean Avenue.

Hodges is also accused of giving a fake name to the police due to him being a fugitive from justice.

Hodges is charged with possession of meth, possession of meth with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, possession of drug related objects, giving false information to police, fugitive from justice, brake light violation and central lane violation.
