On Aug. 3, the U.S. Marshals Service took Caleb Anderson into custody in Helena, Alabama, WBRC reported.

The previous day, police in Green Bay, Wisconsin, responded to the report of a homicide at an apartment complex. The victim’s vehicle was missing, and Anderson was identified as a suspect, police said.

Helena Police Chief Brad Flynn said on Facebook that it was “an especially bad idea for an out-of-state fugitive wanted for homicide to visit our city.”

“You see, HPD was having in service training at city hall at the time we learned he was headed into the city, and everyone immediately hit the street,” Flynn said, noting Anderson “was greeted by over 20 HPD officers, some on duty and some off duty…”
