Texas Murder Suspect Arrested in Memphis by Marshals Task Force

Memphis, TN – U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller announces arrest of Jalen Highsmith for Capital Murder.

On November 7, 2020 Mario Robinson was shot to death outside a Waffle House in Austin, Texas. A warrant for Capital Murder was issued in Austin, Texas for the arrest of Jalen Highsmith for this crime.

Investigators with the Austin Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force developed information that the fugitive was in Memphis, Tennessee.

Early this morning, shortly after midnight, the Memphis Task Force with the assistance of the Multi Agency Gang Unit was able to locate the fugitive and stop him in a vehicle near the intersection of Florida and W. Parkway. He was then taken into custody without incident.

"This was a challenging case in some aspects," said U.S. Marshal Tyreece Miller. "We are pleased to help in bringing this fugitive case to a satisfactory conclusion."
