Fugitive from Texas caught in Jonesboro

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A man wanted for aggravated assault in Dallas County, Texas, has been arrested while apartment hunting in northeast Arkansas.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Bob Clark says he arrested 41-year-old Dalvin Dean Candler about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

Clark says he received a tip Wednesday that Candler had been living in the Jonesboro and Paragould area for about a week.

A booking officer at the Dallas County Sheriff's Department says Candler is wanted in connection with an incident in Mesquite, Texas, but did not have details.

Clark says Candler is also wanted on theft charges in Hot Springs and fraud charges in White, Faulkner and Searcy counties.
