Another man who eluded the Mississippi Department of Corrections on Friday has also been apprehended.
Patrick Dillon Butler, 24, was taken into custody after 4 p.m. on Monday. He was spotted in the area of County Roads 793 and 729, said Sheriff Ben Caldwell, and surrendered when confronted by law enforcement.
The man was considered armed and dangerous, and the marshals service had put out an alert about Butler to area media last Wednesday in hope of tracking him down.
Butler was wanted on charges of methamphetamine possession and evading arrest in McNairy County. He is also a person of interest in an aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery and is wanted by the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office for violation of probation, according to the marshals service.
His last address of record was on Rushing Road in Michie, Tenn., and he was known to frequent Corinth and neighboring Tennessee areas. The Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force had offered a cash reward for information leading to his arrest.
In the other case, the Corinth Police Department arrested Joshua Haynes, 33, of County Road 793. He evaded MDOC officers on Friday morning when they went to pick him up for a parole violation. He was armed and described as a validated gang member.
Detective Dell Green said Haynes was picked up about 9:30 p.m. Friday following a traffic stop of a vehicle in which he was suspected to be traveling.
