Police issue release on Efremidis arrest

On Wednesday February 25, 2009, Front Royal Police arrested 52 year old Elias Efremidis of Front Royal for being a Fugitive from Justice. The fugitive charge stems from an incident involving the trafficking of cocaine in Boston, Massachusetts in 1988.

After an intensive investigation conducted by members of the patrol and criminal investigations division, Mr. Efremidis was found to have been living in the Front Royal area under the alias’ of Ilias and/or Louie Rodinos for the past eleven years.

The investigation was sparked by an incident in which Louie Rodinos had pointed a laser light device at a uniformed officer.

After warrants were obtained by Officer B. Miller and served by Officer E. Rosemeck, suspicions arose as to Rodinos’ true identity. Officer Rosemeck conducted research into the identity of Rodinos and found numerous discrepancies within various police reports. Officer Rosemeck notified Detective Sergeant J. Ryman of his findings and further investigation ensued.

The investigation continued with the assistance of Virginia A.B.C. Agent M. Wild and led detectives to Rodinos’ true identity of Elias Efremidis. Further research revealed outstanding indictments in Boston for the drug trafficking charge. Mr. Efremidis is being held without bond pending further court actions.

The investigation is on-going and anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Jason Ryman with the Front Royal Police Criminal Investigations Division at 540-636-2208.
