Samuel McCurry Top 10

Samuel A. McCurry, a recent addition to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s ‘Top 10 Most Wanted” list, has been captured in Arkansas, according to the TBI.

McCurry, 47, who lives in Gruetli-Laager in Grundy County, was wanted on several sex-related charges.

On Wednesday night, U.S. marshals from the Eastern Arkansas Fugitive Task Force arrested McCurry in Fordyce, Ark.

Investigators believe McCurry traveled to an acquaintance’s home in Fordyce in an attempt to elude authorities.

The TBI added the Grundy county man to the ‘Top 10 Most Wanted’ on Tuesday.

He was wanted by the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office and the TBI for four counts of aggravated sexual battery and rape of a child.

He failed to appear in court for the charges on June 4.

He was being held in Arkansas without bond in the Dallas County Detention Center, pending extradition.
