David Clyde Morgan remains on the run after a traffic stop in Livingston County
Investigators have released dash cam video of the incident in Livingston County that led to the manhunt for a suspect considered armed and dangerous.
David Clyde Morgan has been on the run for nearly three weeks after deputies said he pulled a gun on a Geneseo police officer during a traffic stop on State Route 63 last month. Morgan fled into a cornfield after the officer fired a shot and missed.
According to the criminal complaint against the 49-year-old suspect, authorities raided Morgan's home in Wilmington, North Carolina seeking drugs a week prior to the incident.
Investigators said Morgan was outside the car when he grabbed the weapon during the traffic stop. The officer responded by firing one round.
Morgan's passenger, his girlfriend Sandra Brown, was also outside the car screaming that she didn't have a gun while Morgan escaped. Brown said their plan was to have officers shoot at them then run away and meet each other later, but police apprehended her.
Brown, 40, of Southport, North Carolina, was arrested and charged with menacing a police officer, conspiracy, obstructing government administration, menacing, criminal possession of stolen property, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
She has since pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Morgan remains at large. He has been charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. The charge carries with it a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000.
Morgan spent approximately 211 months in federal prison and was released in March 2017 for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Prior to those charges, he was arrested for robbery in Texas in 1994 and sentenced to two years in prison.
Morgan is 5 feet 7 inches and weighs 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, gray baseball cap, and blue jeans. Morgan is now clean-shaven.
Anyone who has any information on the whereabouts of fugitive David Clyde Morgan is asked to call 911.
