A license plate reader in the area of D-road and west-54 and some quick work by the Camden County Sheriff’s Office are being credited for the capture of a fugitive on the run from Fresno County, California.
“The deputy that got the hit on his phone, ran the license plate through the computer system and made contact with that agency about that stolen vehicle. And then turned out that person was wanted for homicide investigation. We started looking for it and made the right phone calls. And the US marshals got into the area and we located the vehicle down by the city park in Camdenton.”
Chief Deputy Jimmy Brashear also tells KRMS News that 40-year-old Michael Brandon Kent was taken into custody without resistance.
He could also face a fugitive charge in Camden County. Kent is being held without bond pending pick up by Fresno County authorities.
