WEATHERSFIELD — A local man wanted on an in-state arrest warrant was apprehended Monday afternoon by the Windsor County Sheriff’s Department.

Lieutenant Thomas Battista was performing a routine civil process service near Center Church Road at approximately 1:16 p.m. when he recognized Andrew D.

Picknell, Jr., 40, of Baltimore, walking along the roadside.

Battista, who had earlier assisted Vermont State Police in a related incident involving Picknell, activated his emergency lights and proceeded to make contact with the suspect.

Earlier that morning, Picknell had eluded state troopers attempting to arrest him, fleeing into the woods near the Amsden Gravel Pit.

His escape prompted a brief search by law enforcement before he was later spotted and detained by Lt. Battista.

Following his arrest, Picknell was transported to the Vermont Superior Court-Windsor Criminal Division for arraignment.

The court has scheduled a hearing for June 25 at 2:30 p.m.

Picknell is currently being held at the Southern State Correctional Facility.
