Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Reckless Driving Suspect Caught by U.S. Marshals

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).

On August 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.”

The U.S. 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.
