VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- Valdosta Police have arrested a man wanted on multiple warrants stemming from a traffic crash investigation.

On Tuesday at approximately 11 a.m., authorities spotted a known wanted subject, 22-year-old Devin Cromartie, in the 2500 block of Forrestwood Drive.

According to Valdosta Police, a road patrol shift supervisor attempted to make contact with Cromartie, but upon seeing law enforcement, Cromartie fled the area on foot into a neighborhood.

Additional officers responded to the scene and joined the foot pursuit. Cromartie was finally apprehended after approximately 20 minutes.

VPD says Cromartie was wanted for an incident that occurred back on January the 5th. In that case, warrants were signed against Cromartie for multiple traffic violations resulting from a crash investigation.

Cromartie was arrested on warrants for driving without a valid license, reckless driving, failure to signal, disregarding a stop sign, and fleeing and attempting to elude. Cromartie was also wanted for two violation of probation warrants.

VPD says Cromartie faces an additional charge of misdemeanor obstruction following Tuesday's incident.

Cromartie was taken to the Lowndes County Jail.
