LYNCHBURG, Va. – The Lynchburg Police Department arrested five individuals after receiving information about the location of one wanted woman Monday morning.

Police learned shortly after 5 a.m. that 23-year-old Felicia Ellen Floyd, who is wanted on multiple charges, was at the Best Western on Candlers Mountain Road. She had also been featured by the Police Department's Manhunter program and had her picture published on the department's Facebook page.

As officers approached the hotel, Floyd left the parking lot in a silver vehicle with a man.

When officers stopped that vehicle in the 3900 block of Wards Road, they arrested Floyd and the man in the car, 23-year-old Gaige Alexander Wade, who was also wanted.

Floyd faces charges of capias, forgery and obtaining money by false pretense. Wade faces a charge of failure to appear on a charge of grand larceny in Amherst County.

While those arrests were happening, police say other officers entered the hotel room where Floyd was and they found three people -- two of whom were wanted. Those two were arrested by police.

Kylee Ann McCue, 22, of Lynchburg, was arrested on a charge for failure to appear on a possession of a controlled substance out of Appomattox.

Bronson Thomas Wood, 36, was arrested on a capias from Bedford County, as well as possession of a controlled substance, and possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance in relation to this incident.

During this investigation, police learned that weapons and drugs were in the hotel room, along with other people who refused to leave the room.

The department's Tactical and Negotiations Units were called to the scene and they took 31-year-old Andrew Bennett Dalton, of Rustburg, into custody warrants for abduction and kidnapping, as well as domestic assault and battery.
