Dyersburg, TN – On January 24th, 2024, U.S. Marshals (USMS) and the Dyersburg Police Department captured a Wisconsin fugitive in West Tennessee.

Joseph Walker, 35, of Racine, was wanted for First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Felony Theft of a Firearm, and Felony Bail Jumping for an alleged crime that occurred on January 14th in Racine. The case was adopted by the U.S. Marshals Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force in Milwaukee. They developed information that Walker had fled Wisconsin and was possibly in Dyersburg. The USMS Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force in Jackson was requested to assist in finding Walker.

The fugitive investigation led the task force to a residence on Wabash Circle in Dyersburg. Walker was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Dyer County Jail as he awaits extradition back to Wisconsin.

The U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force (TRVFTF) is a multi-agency task force within Western Tennessee. The TRVFTF has offices in Memphis and Jackson, and its membership is primarily composed of Deputy U.S. Marshals, Shelby, Fayette, and Tipton County Sheriff’s Deputies, Memphis and Jackson Police Officers, and the Tennessee Department of Correction Special Agents. The primary mission of the Task Force is to arrest violent offenders and sexual predators.
