(DUNLAP, Tenn.) – An FBI SWAT Team and Deputy United States Marshals captured a fugitive who had been on the lam for three years.


Knoxville, Chattanooga and Tullahoma FBI Agents and U.S. Marshals located former Grundy County resident, 53-year-old Vincent Garner at a mobile home in rural Sequatchie County Tuesday evening. He was taken into custody without incident.


Garner was indicted by a federal grand jury in Chattanooga on drug and gun charges in 2016.


He was booked at the FBI Office in Chattanooga and transported to a local jail until his initial appearance and arraignment on those charges in federal court later this week.
