NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police arrested six fugitives from six different states over Labor Day weekend.
Most of the fugitives were found through the National Crime Information Center system.
When someone is wanted or missing, their information is entered into NCIC database. If they are stopped for a traffic violation or any other crime, the officer can run their name through system and see if they have any outstanding warrants.
Usually, one or two fugitives of justice are arrested each weekend, but Labor Day Weekend was a busy one for police. In all they arrested six people, according to affidavits.
- Thomas Mann has an outstanding warrant out of Georgia
- Jecorrius Taylor has an outstanding warrant out of Missouri
- Christopher Shockley has an outstanding warrant out of Louisiana for probation and parole violation
- Jeffrey Albright has an outstanding warrant out of Kentucky for fraud
- Brandon Harris has an outstanding warrant out of Texas for parole violation
- Tony Caldwell has an outstanding warrant out of Arkansas for failure to register as a sex offender
The system makes sure police officers across the country know who the serious criminals are, and when they’re on the streets.
Metro police said fugitives are likely arrested in Nashville so often because it’s in the middle of country, and there are three interstate systems running through the area. They said a lot of fugitives are arrested during traffic stops.
