alicia-watt-2LIMESTONE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – CNET officers and other law enforcement apprehended two wanted Felony Fugitives at a residence on McGregor Road, in Limestone Township, Clarion County.

According to a Criminal Complaint, around 1:25 p.m. on August 28, Clarion County Detective William Peck went to the residence of 47-year-old Bobby Gene Dunkle, at 106 McGregor Road, Clarion, Pa., as part of his investigation on two wanted Felony Fugitives, 41-year-old David L. Jordan, of Memphis, Tn., and 22-year-old Alicia Watt, of Knox, Pa., both wanted on Felony Drug Charges.

The fugitive investigation revealed that possibly both Watt and Jordan were staying at Dunkle’s residence.

Peck was assisted by the U.S. Marshal Service, PSP Troop C Vice Unit, and PSP Clarion.

The front door of the residence was open, and officials could see Dunkle sitting on the couch in the living room and another resident of the house sitting on a chair holding a small child in the living room, according to the Criminal Complaint.

Authorities made contact with Dunkle and asked him if Alicia Watt and “E” were at the residence. (“E” is the street name for Jordan.) Dunkle said that Watt wasn’t there. Detective Peck asked him when the last time she was there and he said approximately two weeks ago. Thru talking to Dunkle, he allegedly changed his story and said Watt was there yesterday. Dunkle said that Watt was staying outside in the camper trailer.

Authorities searched the area for the fugitives. A live marijuana plant growing under a “grow light” was discovered in the basement of the residence.

U.S. Marshal Agents discovered Jordan on the first floor bathroom area. He was taken into custody without incident.

The U.S. Marshal Agents continued to search for Watt on the second floor of the residence, and a “hidden” room was found off the second floor bathroom which was a “grow” room. The room was designed to be concealed and had grow lighting inside with numerous water jugs and chemicals inside to manufacture marijuana. The room contained numerous potting containers used to grow marijuana. The floor contained numerous dried marijuana particles and leaves.

Peck seized a “marijuana” roach; a marijuana bong; grow lighting equipment; and three marijuana plants from the Limestone property as evidence.

Officers continued to search the property and checked inside the travel trailer parked behind the garage. They located six cellular telephones; one had Watt’s picture on the screen.

Peck observed a spoon on the sink with white residue, a small digital scale, and numerous sandwich baggies that were allegedly used to package controlled substances.

Peck also located a Michigan photo driver’s license of Alonzo Randolph Cozart, Jr. DOB: 08-12-1974 and a social security card of Cozart and two paper temporary driver’s license, Kayla Phillips DOB: 10-24-1985 and Alonzo Cozart.

Peck asked Jordan what his name was, and he replied “Alonzo Cozart.”

Jordan told Peck that Watt was not with him, that he hadn’t seen her for a long time, and his girlfriend, Kayla Phillips, from Detroit, was with him.

Jordan’s person was searched and inside his shoe, underneath the lining, he possessed $1,063.00 in U.S. Currency.

At approximately 5:00 p.m., Watt was located behind a “false” wall in the travel trailer. The area contained approximately three feet of hidden space the width of the trailer which contained an old marijuana grow operation. Watt had barricaded herself behind the “false” door. Detective Peck and Trooper Thomas had to force open the door and remove Watt from the area in which she was hiding.

She was taken into custody without incident.

Both Watt and Jordan were transported to PSP Clarion for processing.

During the interview, Jordan conveyed that the temporary driver’s license documents were not real, and that he made them himself on the computer.

Jordan also stated that he found the driver’s license and social security card in a wallet in Michigan.
