An 18 year-old who was wanted for a string of armed robberies that were committed in Marion in February was caught by police early Thursday.
Davon E. McLorn was captured at 6:30 a.m. by members of the U.S. Marshall Task Force and members of the Madison Police Department.
Though McLorn attempted to run away, he was arrested without incident in the 300 block of Hill Street in Eagle Park Acres, said Madison Police Chief Stephen Shelby.
"He was at an acquaintance's house," Shelby said. "It was good old-fashioned police work. We hit the streets, knocked on doors and talked to people."
"We arrested him on a Williamson County warrant and a parole violation. McLorn attempted to flee but the task force and the Madison police had the residence surrounded and McLorn was taken into custody without incident," said U.S. Marshal Don Slaznik.
McLorn was being held at the Madison Jail but will be taken back to the Williamson County jail to face charges, Slaznik said.
Slaznik and Shelby credited police cooperation between the Marshal Service and the Madison Police as the reason for the arrest of McLorn, a suspect police had been looking for since February.
"There's good collaboration between the Marshal service and Madison police," Shelby said.
