Demetrist Glover may have a baby face, but law enforcement officials say don’t let that fool you.
The 22-year-old D.C. man is a wanted fugitive with a history of arrests on charges of gun violations, dealing drugs and failure to obey court orders.
U.S. marshals are asking the public to help track down Glover and put him behind bars.
“We would like to have one less armed drug dealer hanging around on our streets when schools let out and our children are spending more time playing outside,” said Matthew Burke, supervisory inspector with the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. “If we can keep the guys that are convicted of crimes in jail or under some sort of supervision, hopefully, we can keep the neighborhoods a little safer.”

Glover was found guilty last year of carrying a handgun in the District of Columbia and was released before his sentencing. But Glover failed to show up to D.C. Superior Court to receive his punishment, and the judge issued a warrant for his arrest.
That was in September. Glover remains on the run.
Glover, who also uses the alias Demetrius Jerome, is described as 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds. He has a distinctive teardrop tattoo under his right eye. He is known to wear his hair in dreadlocks and cropped short.
Police said Glover has lived on Chesapeake Street in Southeast Washington.
Anyone with information on Glover’s whereabouts is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service at 301-489-1717 or 800-336-0102. Law enforcement authorities are offering a reward for information leading to Glover’s arrest.
The Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, run by the U.S. Marshals Service, is composed of 28 federal, state and local agencies from Baltimore to Norfolk. The unit has captured 20,000 wanted fugitives since its creation in 2004.
