Joint Task Force Executes 25 Year Old Warrant
Fugitive Arrested On Charges of Robbery
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Larry Lou McCumber, 66, was arrested yesterday by the United States Marshals Service Oklahoma City Metro Fugitive Squad (OCMFS) in Oklahoma City, OK. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD), where more than 25 years ago McCumber was indicted on allegations of robbery and threat to a business.
On January 8, 2014, members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force initiated an investigation in the search for McCumber. Subsequent to the investigation, task force officers discovered that McCumber had previously fled from San Antonio, TX to Oklahoma City, OK. Members of the LSFTF then contacted members of the OCMFS in Oklahoma City, OK for assistance in locating and apprehending McCumber. Yesterday, task force officers determined through investigative efforts that McCumber was residing at a house in the 3800 block of Hiddleston Circle, in Oklahoma City, OK. Task force officers conducted a brief surveillance and approached the residence. Task force officers made contact with McCumber’s spouse, identified themselves, entered the residence, made contact with McCumber, and took him into custody without incident.
On April 20, 1988, McCumber was formally indicted by a Grand Jury in Bexar County on allegations of robbery and threat to a business. A warrant for McCumber’s arrest was issued the same day. On January 22, 1988, McCumber allegedly entered a hotel in San Antonio, walked to the front desk, and handed a note to the clerk demanding money. McCumber then placed his hand in his jacket pocket and motioned to indicate he had a weapon. Once the clerk handed McCumber the money, he verbally threatened her not to do anything, and he ran from the hotel.
McCumber is currently in custody at the Cleveland County Detention Facility in Norman, OK awaiting extradition to Bexar County.
Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “More than 25 years ago a warrant was issued for McCumber’s arrest and more than 25 years later he’s finally in custody. The collaborative effort between the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the Oklahoma City Metro Fugitive Squad proves that our task force officers are good at what they do…pursue fugitives and put them behind bars.”
