James Maxwell

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office most wanted person of the week is:

James Andrew Maxwell of Fresno.  A judge has issued a bench warrant for failing to report to court on multiple drug charges.

A Fresno County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a vehicle stop and identified James Maxwell as the driver and discovered he was on probation.  During a search of his car, the deputy found heroin, methamphetamine, prescription pills, along with a scale and packaging materials.  The evidence showed Maxwell possessed these illegal drugs for the purpose of sales, so the deputy arrested him.

Maxwell was booked into the Fresno County Jail.  He spent two hours in custody and was then released due to his charges qualifying for Fresno County’s zero dollar emergency rule.  He has since failed to report to his court hearing.

James Maxwell is white, 40 years old, 6’0”, 200 lbs. with blue eyes and he is balding.
