He was apprehended in Louisiana by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Proactive Enforcement Unit and is currently awaiting extradition to Georgia. Sheriff Randy Smith emphasized that they do not tolerate criminals seeking refuge in their parish, and they were pleased to assist their Georgia counterparts in locating and apprehending the suspect.
