Wanted: Man with lucky '7' tattooed on his neck

Updated, 6:12 p.m.:

Raymond Stanley Morgan III was apprehended Wednesday in Middlesex County, Va., after the St. Mary’s County Bureau of Criminal Investigations developed information about his whereabouts.

Morgan was taken into custody as he tried to flee a residence in Middlesex County, as part of a combined effort by the U.S. Marshall’s Service, St. Mary’s County sheriff’s office and local police.

Morgan was charged with attempted murder and kidnapping, authorities said.

Original post:

Washington area authorities are on the lookout for Raymond Stanley Morgan III, last seen in the Southern Maryland community of Hollywood on Tuesday. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous, and he has been charged in a warrant with attempted murder, domestic assault, abduction, and larceny.

A tattoo artist by trade, Morgan is described as a white male, 23 years old, 5-feet-9, and weighing about 180 pounds. And then there's the ink: A large "7" on the neck, as well as tattoos along both arms. A photograph released by the St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office was taken before the 7 was created, a department spokeswoman says.

Besides the Hollywood sighting, Morgan may have tried to visit a sister in St. Mary's on Tuesday, said the spokeswoman, Cindy Allen. The sister came home to see lights on and called authorities, who responded with a SWAT operation and at least one police dog. A search did not find Morgan, but there were indications someone had been inside, Allen said.

The suspect's "family has been cooperating. They want him to turn himself in safely," Allen said.

It wasn't immediately clear how Morgan came to be charged with attempted murder. He is wanted by the Richmond Police Department, Maryland State Police in Leonardtown, and the St. Mary’s County sheriff's office, officials said. He might be wearing a yellow jacket and camouflage pants, officials said.

Allen said that deputies do not think he has a car with him.

Anyone who sees Raymond Stanley Morgan III is asked to call 911 immediately. "Do not approach Mr. Morgan," authorities warned.

White trash genius on the rampage. Probably refers to the 6th grade as his "senior year."

Check the work schedule to see which cops were off duty. Then start your investigation there. Would the public be surprised?

He appears to be an upstanding young man whom I would personally like to challenge to a spelling contest.

look I am his sister. none of you know him as far as you could throw him. As far his situation with this none of you have a damn clue of the whole story. He has made some mistakes yes. but dont judge him when you dont know him or the full story. I love him dearly and he is NOT the monster that all of this is making him out to be.

I'll bet a call to the Richmond PD or the MSP or the St. Mary's Sheriff's department could answer that question. Lazy reporter-itis.

"mistakes" says sis. These are mistakes?

"Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous, and he has been charged in a warrant with attempted murder, domestic assault, abduction, and larceny."

A mistake is when you leave something in the microwave too long or call your wife by your gf's name.

All his relatives are coming out of the woodwork to defend him. Got to come down on the police. They're never right. Always hauling innocent angels away to jail for no reason whatsoever. She makes it sound like he got busted for jaywalking & double parking. I bet his aunt has a shotgun, pistol, machine gun, crossbow, hand grenades & god knows what else in her trailer.

Of course the family isn't going to be impartial. He's a nice boy. Leave him alone.

So this is all made up by the police? Another conspiracy/unfair police harassment.
