Lexington, NC -- A man who deputies say was driving over the speed limit and driving to close to another vehicle turned out to be a wanted fugitive in Texas.

Officers with the Davidson County Sheriff's Office pulled over Rohan Basanio Powell at mile-marker 94 on I-85 N Wednesday. After reviewing his record they learned the man from New York was a wanted fugitive in Houston for "Tamper Government Record," according to the sheriff's office.

Deputies took Powell to the Davidson County Detention Center, where he was issued a $250,000 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court in Davidson County June 24.

The sheriff's office said Powell is wanted with full extradition to Texas.
