Humboldt, TN – On September 27, 2023, a man wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service, Humboldt Police Department (HPD), and the Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) was captured by law enforcement inside a college dormitory room. Daniel Crawford, 22, of Humboldt, was taken into custody after the U.S. Marshals tracked him to Clarksville, TN.
On September 8th, it is alleged that Crawford approached a man on North 20th Avenue in Humboldt and shot at him due to a prior incident between the man and Crawford. Humboldt police detectives signed a warrant for Crawford’s arrest for Attempted First Degree Murder, Reckless Endangerment, and weapons charges. HPD requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Two Rivers Violent Fugitive Task Force in Jackson to find and apprehend Crawford. He was also wanted by TDOC for violation of probation. Crawford was placed on probation in 2022 after being convicted of two counts of Aggravated Assault in Gibson County, TN.
U.S. Marshals developed information that Crawford was with a Humboldt woman who was a student at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville. Marshals shared information with Austin Peay State University (APSU) Campus Police and the Clarksville Police Department (CPD). On September 27th around 3:00pm, APSU Campus Police, CPD, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) took Crawford into custody without incident in the student’s dorm room. He was transported to the Montgomery County Jail.
