TEXAS FUGITIVE ARRESTED THURSDAY AFTERNOON
Joshua M. Callaway
A rural Mountain Home man, 24 year old JOSHUA M. CALLAWAY, surrendered himself to the Sheriff’s Office Thursday afternoon after learning that authorities were searching for him on an outstanding warrant from the State of Texas. The felony warrant was for a Probation Violation on an original charge involving the assault of an elderly person. CALLAWAY absconded from Texas in July, 2014 and came to Arkansas.
The United States Marshal’s Service contacted the Sheriff’s Office asking for assistance in locating JOSHUA CALLAWAY. A Deputy Marshal and a Deputy from the Sheriff’s Office went to a Mountain Home business where CALLAWAY works in an attempt to locate him. He was not there.
Deputies then followed a vehicle associated with JOSHUA CALLAWAY and made contact with the driver in Mountain Home. JOSHUA CALLAWAY was not in the vehicle, however the driver was able to assist in contacting CALLAWAY and arranging for him to come to the Sheriff’s Office on the warrant.
JOSHUA CALLAWAY is currently being held in the Detention Center awaiting extradition to the State of Texas.
