Jackson, TN – United States Marshal Tyreece Miller announces
the arrest of Christopher Curry, 22, for various charges related to a
vehicle pursuit by the Jackson Police Department (JPD).
27, 2021, Christopher Curry allegedly fled from JPD Officers before
wrecking at the dead of Richmond Street and fleeing into a wooded area.
A 9 mm handgun and a loaded magazine were recovered at the scene.
On August 30, 2021, JPD issued a warrant for Curry for Felony
Evading, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and Reckless Driving. This
case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task
Force in Jackson, TN. The Marshals Task Force and JPD worked together to
locate the fugitive.
This morning, September 7, Curry was tracked
to an address on Skyhaven Cove in Jackson. He was found inside the
residence and was taken into custody without further incident.
“Violent, armed fugitives who run from the police pose even more of a
significant threat by recklessly putting innocent people on our roadways
in danger,” said Marshal Tyreece Miller. “The Jackson Police Department
did a good job of identifying the suspect after he crashed and fled the
scene. We were glad to assist with his capture.”
Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force is a multi-agency task
force within Western Tennessee. The Western Tennessee Division of the
TRVFTF has offices in Memphis and Jackson, and its membership is
primarily composed of Deputy U.S. Marshals, Shelby County Sheriff’s
Deputies, Memphis Police Officers, Fayette County Sheriff’s Deputies,
Jackson Police Officers, and the Tennessee Department of Corrections
Special Agents. The primary mission of the Task Force is to arrest
violent offenders and sexual predators.
