Fugitive with 'Born to Die' tattoo captured

PALM COAST, Fla. -- A man was arrested on a North Carolina attempted murder charge after police found a ski mask and 9mm ammunition during a traffic stop early Thursday morning in a Walmart parking lot in Flagler County.

Glen Allen Stewart, 24, is facing North Carolina charges of first-degree attempted murder and discharging a weapon, according to a release from Flagler County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Commander Bob Weber.

Stewart, who is from Erwin, North Carolina, is also facing local charges of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and resisting arrest without violence.

Driving a black Chevrolet Tahoe, Stewart was first noticed by deputies after driving slowly in the parking lot at 174 Cypress Point Parkway. Deputies found that the vehicle tags were revoked for lapse in insurance, and they were then told by dispatchers that the vehicle had been involved in a North Carolina crime.

Stewart presented deputies with a driver's license and Social Security card that bore the name "Alphonso Bristow Jr.," the release detailed. Deputies also got more description information about Stewart and learned that he had a tattoo that spelled out "Born to Die" on his knuckles. Flagler deputies found that same tattoo on Stewart as he pretended to be Alphonso Bristow Jr.

During the search of Stewart's vehicle, law enforcement also found $2,600, which Stewart claimed belonged to him and wanted back, according to a charging affidavit. Stewart also claimed that everything in the Tahoe belonged to him.

Stewart is being held in the Flagler County Detention Facility on no bond.
