Mr. Gregory "Bink" Prosise has been transported to a holding facility located in Hampton, VA where he is currently being held without bond pending his arraignment.

The Hopewell Police Department wishes to express its sincere gratitude and appreciation to the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Taskforce, the media and members of the public for the assistance they provided which ultimately led to the capture of this wanted and dangerous fugitive.

Chief John Keohane stated "the outpouring of tips from the community led to several arrests over a 5-day period of individuals involved in the homicide and possible retaliation. I thank the community for having the trust in the police department and assisting us in removing these dangerous felons off the streets of Hopewell. "
