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…”
He added: “We hoped he enjoyed his brief visit to our city.”
Michigan State Police said Anderson is also wanted in their state in connection with the alleged Aug. 1 assault and attempted kidnapping of a female jogger in Iron County, according to WBRC.
