The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) report that they are seeking Dylan John Knouse who has ties to Frederick County and Richmond.

Knouse is wanted for felony eluding law enforcement in several counties.

The 30-year-old Knouse most recently was tracked in a rental vehicle Thanksgiving Day traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on Winchester Road in Fauquier County.

After a Fauquier County Deputy attempted a traffic stop Knouse sped up to well over 100 miles per hour.

From Winchester Road Knouse sped to Interstate 66 heading west with speeds of at least 120 miles per hour.

Knouse passed several other vehicles including on the right shoulder of the interstate.

Eventually Knouse took exit 13 into Linden and east onto John Marshall Highway.

After numerous erratic maneuvers Knouse turned on to Fiery Run Road and finally abandoned his vehicle on Harrels Corner Road.

Several warrants have been issued by the magistrate for Knouse’s capture.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact the FCSO at 540-347-3300.
