GA – A Rincon man wanted on sixteen warrants by four departments was
arrested by the United States Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force
and Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department (SCMPD) on August 11, 2011
in Savannah, Georgia.
Aaron Craig Hubbard, 23, was being sought on two warrants from the Effingham
County Sheriff’s Department for Sale of Cocaine and Unlawful Use of
Communication Facilities. Hubbard was also being sought on a warrant by the
Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles for parole violation based on the Effingham
County charges as well as absconding from supervision. He was on parole for a
2008 weapon and drug charge. Hubbard was being sought on twelve warrants by the
Port Wentworth Police Department for the following offenses to include:
Aggravated assault on a Police Officer, Possession of a firearm by a convicted
felon, Carrying a concealed weapon, Theft by receiving stolen property, Criminal
damage to property first degree, misdemeanor and felony obstruction, Possession
of a firearm during the commission of a crime, Interference with government
property, felony fleeing and eluding, loitering and prowling, and criminal
trespass. Hubbard was also wanted by SCMPD for the offense of theft by taking
motor vehicle. All of these charges happened in various incidents in a four
month time frame from March to July of 2011.
The case was referred to the Savannah Office of the U.S. Marshals Southeast
Regional Fugitive Task Force in July 2011. The Savannah Task Force conducted an
extensive investigation over the last three and a half weeks to find Hubbard.
Numerous leads were generated by the Marshals Task Force. The Task Force
received information that Hubbard was possibly at a home on Sherwood Court in
Rincon, Georgia on July 8, 2011. The Marshals Task Force with the assistance of
the Effingham County Drug Squad went to the address and Hubbard was not there.
The Marshals Task Force worked tirelessly to locate Hubbard and received
information that he was possibly at a home in the 1100 block of Springfield
Street located off Stiles Avenue on Savannah’s westside. On August 11, 2011,
with the assistance of SCMPD patrol units, the Marshals Task Force went to the
address and found Hubbard. Hubbard was arrested without incident. There were two
other males in the home. One of the other males, Marlon Hayes, was also arrested
on an unrelated outstanding SCMPD warrant for Contempt of Court for Failure to
appear. Both men were taken to the Chatham County Detention Center.
Annually, investigations carried out by the U.S. Marshals result in the
apprehension of over 36, 000 federal fugitives. More federal fugitives are
arrested by the Marshals Service than all other federal agencies combined.
The Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force has three offices: Atlanta,
Macon, and Savannah. The task force covers the whole state of Georgia. The
Savannah Office of the Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force is a team
comprised of investigators from the Georgia Department of Corrections, the
Chatham County Sheriff’s Department, the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police
Department and the United States Marshals Service. The task force objective is
to seek out and arrest fugitives charged with violent crimes, drug crimes, sex
offenders, and other felonies. In 2010, U.S. Marshals led task forces arrested
more than 81,000 state and local fugitives on felony charges.
