U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Brandon Purdy

Jackson, TN – U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller announces the arrest of Brandon Purdy. Madison County issued several warrants for the arrest of Purdy, including: Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule 1, Heroin and Fentanyl, Schedule 2, Suboxone Strips, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and Possession of a Weapon During the Commission of a Dangerous Felony.

On 8/6/20 Investigators with the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force based in Jackson, TN were able to track Purdy to an address at the 300 block of McGee Loop Jackson, TN. Purdy fled in a vehicle from Deputy Marshals and Task Force Officers. Purdy was pursued about a half-mile before stopping at the 100 block of Henderson Road. Purdy was removed from his vehicle and taken into custody with no further incident.

“I want to commend the work of the Deputy Marshals and Task Force Officers for doing their diligence in tracking down Purdy and taking him into custody. He is a dangerous individual who won’t have the opportunity to put his poison on the streets of Jackson,” said Marshal Miller.
