April 18, 2017 Craig Beam, Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal
District of Kansas (913) 551-6727
Man Wanted in Kansas Stabbing Arrested in Tennessee
Topeka, KS - The United States Marshals Service arrested 31 year old Kansas resident Tyler Lloyd McCarley. The U.S. Marshals in Kansas worked in cooperation with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office to arrest this dangerous subject. McCarley was wanted on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated burglary, and theft. The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office was called to a stabbing on March 28, 2017, in the 200 block of East Highway 99 in Olpe, KS. McCarley was allegedly encountered by a homeowner inside the homeowner’s parked vehicle in his garage. When the homeowner confronted McCarley, McCarley reportedly produced a knife and lunged at the homeowner, cutting him. Due to the severity of the wound, the victim was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and later released.

An arrest warrant for McCarley was issued in Lyon County District Court on April 6th, but McCarley had fled the state of Kansas to avoid capture by area law enforcement. Information was developed that McCarley was most likely residing in Louisville, Kentucky. With the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Louisville, KY, McCarley was located on Monday afternoon, April 17th, at the Frosty Mug Drive-In in Harrogate, Tennessee. McCarley was positively identified and taken into custody without incident. He was booked into the Clairborne County Jail in Tennessee where he will be held pending extradition back to Lyon County, Kansas.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force is a multi-jurisdictional fugitive task force comprised of the United States Marshals Service, Topeka Police Department, Kansas Department of Corrections, and the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office.
