BLUEFIELD —  Two male subjects wanted out of Huntington have been arrested in Bluefield as a result of a traffic stop on Bland Street.

Antonio Ward, 31, and Joseph Scott Reeves, 28, were taken into custody Sunday night after Sgt. M.D. McPherson of the Bluefield Police Department recognized the license plate number on the black 2002 Accura they were driving in.

Ward is wanted on attempted murder, first-degree armed robbery and first-degree kidnapping and Reeves is wanted on kidnapping, malicious wounding and first-degree armed robbery.

Bluefield Police Chief D.W. Dillow said the two subjects are in custody at the Bluefield jail and will have a bond hearing in Mercer County circuit court later today.
