Donald Wyckoff continues getting arrested by Weaverville Police.

Weaverville – There were yet two more arrests of what some are starting to believe is the most arrested Weaverville resident who has yet to spend any serious time in jail or have any of his more than 50 cases tried in court.

Donald Wyckoff of Rabbit Ridge Drive, a name readers are well acquainted with, has been arrested twice more over the Christmas holidays. The latest, according to a press release by the Weaverville Police Department, is “while on routine patrol in the area of Hamburg Mountain Road on Christmas Day (Dec. 25th, 2018) at approximately 12:32 am, Corporal Fulmer of the police department observed a driver of a motor vehicle who he believed did not possess a valid North Carolina Driver’s License as required by law.

Fulmer confirmed the driver to be “Wyckoff, who, in fact, did not possess a valid driver’s license. The driver was arrested and charged with No Operator’s License. He was then transported to the Buncombe County Detention Facility and later released on a Written Promise to Appear.“

Then, on Saturday “…December 28, 2018, at approximately 11:50 a.m. Senior Officer Burrell of the Weaverville Police Department observed a vehicle in the area of Rabbit Ridge Drive being operated by Wyckoff.

“After confirming that the suspect’s license status was invalid, Officer Burrell conducted a vehicle stop. During a subsequent investigation, a controlled substance believed to be methamphetamine was located. The suspect was arrested and transported to Buncombe County Detention Facility and was charged with No Operator’s License, Resisting a Public Official and Possession of Methamphetamine. He was given a $2,000 secured bond.”

Of the more than 50 charges Wyckoff, 62, is currently facing in Buncombe County, at least two are serious felonies, according to documents obtained from the county’s clerk of court.
