UPPER PROVIDENCE - A parolee wanted in Philadelphia was nabbed after police ran his fingerprints through the newly acquired Live Scan identification system.
Lazarus Hall, of the 6700 block of Guyer Street, is being held in Delaware County prison pending a transfer to Philadelphia. Hall is wanted there for violating his parole in connection with a third-degree murder conviction, police said.
Hall was stopped by Cpl. Dave Nolan at about 1:55 a.m. Sunday after he was allegedly seen driving his Nissan 41 mph in a 25 mph zone in the 700 block of West Baltimore Pike.
Hall allegedly gave Nolan the name of Trevaughn Lloyd, and said he didn't have a driver's license and didn't know his social security number, according to Cpl. Dave Montella.
When Nolan was speaking with Hall, he noticed the odor of marijuana coming from inside of his car, Montella said. The corporal had Hall perform several field sobriety tests, all of which he allegedly failed. Hall, still posing as Lloyd, was taken back to the Media police station and processed on DUI and related charges.
Within minutes of running his fingerprints through Live Scan, police received a response back indicating that Lloyd was Hall and was a wanted person.
A detainer was lodged against him and he was transported to Delaware County prison.
Montella said the recently acquired Live Scan System is already paying dividends.
"It's a real asset to the law enforcement community," Montella said. "In small town suburbia, because of this new evidence, we get some pretty bad people off the street."
The Live Scan (digital fingerprint and palm print identification) and CPIN (digital photograph identification) systems is the newest technology in the county to assist law enforcement. It complements the existing Justice Network (JNET), which allows departments to exchange information online.
