CLARK – Police arrested a fugitive on a 15-year-old Florida murder warrant yesterday during a routine motor vehicle stop.

At 3:11 p.m. Clark Police Officer Antonio Manata stopped Mark Haye of Irvington for speeding on Ross Street in Clark.  Haye was unable to produce valid motor vehicle credentials and proceeded to give Manata several false names and dates of birth, Clark Police Chief Denis Connell said.

Haye was placed under arrest for hindering apprehension and the speeding violation and transported to police headquarters for processing, Connell said. In an attempt to determine the suspect’s true identity, his fingerprints were submitted to the FBI’s database, which revealed an existing arrest record, Connell said.
