Dennis Wilson Finley, Jr., who has been on the lam since allegedly taking a car after holding a knife to a woman parked at an Enterprise Business on Monday, was taken into custody in Gadsden County, Fla., on Thursday.
Finley was wanted on a warrant for first-degree robbery in the carjacking case involving a woman and a 10-year-old.
Enterprise Police had been searching for Finley, and in a press release on Thursday afternoon, the EPD thanked the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office and the Quincy Police Department for their assistance. Quincy is about 115 miles from Enterprise and less than 25 miles west of Tallahassee, Fla.
At about 5:32 p.m. on Monday, Enterprise Police responded to a business on College Street following a call of theft of a vehicle by force.
The victim advised that she went inside of a business and had left her car running with her 10-year-old son still inside the vehicle. The victim told police that she saw a white male in his late 40’s get in the driver’s seat. She ran back to the car to get her son. The suspect brandished a knife and told the woman to get out of the car. The victim was able to get her son out safely.
Enterprise Police Officers located the victim’s vehicle several minutes later, but the suspect was gone on arrival.
