SPRINGFIELD — A routine traffic stop by Springfield police officers led to the arrest of a man wanted on several warrants, including one for being a fugitive from justice, authorities said Wednesday.

During the stop, which occurred at 10:30 p.m. on Feb. 20, officers encountered Jesse Morey as a passenger in the vehicle.

Morey initially gave a false name to the officers but was subsequently identified correctly.

A check revealed that Morey had an active in-state arrest warrant and another extraditable warrant from New Hampshire.

He was taken into custody without further incident.

Following his arrest, Morey was transported to the Springfield Police Department for processing.

He was then issued a criminal citation to appear in the Vermont Superior Court, Criminal Division, Windsor Unit the next day at 12:30 p.m. to respond to the charges.

After processing, Morey was taken to the Southern State Correctional Facility, where he was held in lieu of bail.

The charges against him include being a fugitive from justice, arrest on warrant, and providing false information to police.
