The Cleveland Police Department assisted federal marshals Monday night in apprehending a fugitive from Mississippi reportedly wanted on a warrant for murder.
Harry Kenyon Smith, 19, was booked into the Bradley County Sheriff's Office's Correctional Facility Monday night, and charged as a fugitive from justice. He is wanted for murder in Adams County, Miss. Details of the crime involving the Natchez, Miss., resident were not available this morning.
According to CPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Evie West, the U.S. Marshal's Office would only allow her to release information the police department "assisted the U.S. Marshals in arresting a fugitive out of Mississippi."
She did say the apprehension of the fugitive occurred on 20th Street at Willow Springs around 8 p.m. Monday.
West stated she did not know the name of the fugitive or the charge against him, just the CPD assisted in the apprehension.
However, through the freedom of information act, the Banner was able to obtain his name and any charges, and a booking mugshot taken when incarcerated.
The Adams County Sheriff's Office does have a warrant for murder for Smith. He had previously been booked at the sheriff's office there, according to records, in late January.
An officer in the Adams County Sheriff's Office said someone at the department would determine when Smith will be returned to Natchez.
