CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — An Akron, Ohio, man who was wanted for murder in Harrison County is now in police custody.

Kameron Griffin, 23, of Akron, was arrested in Ohio on Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force for the alleged kidnapping and murder of Dallion Lewis. Griffin also allegedly attempted to flee from authorities during the arrest attempt but was arrested by U.S. Marshals a short distance away from the residence he was hiding at.
