A fugitive from Grundy County on Tennessee's '10 Most Wanted' list has been captured.

Last night, U.S. Marshals arrested 47-year-old Samuel A. McCurry in Fordyce, Arkansas, according to a news release.

Investigators believe McCurry, who lives in Gruetli Laager, traveled to an acquaintance's home in Fordyce in an attempt to elude authorities.

The TBI added McCurry to the 'Top 10 Most Wanted' on Tuesday. He was wanted by the Grundy County Sheriff's Office and the TBI for four counts of aggravated sexual battery and rape of a child. He failed to appear in court for the charges on June 4.

He is being held in Arkansas without bond in the Dallas County Detention Center, pending extradition back to Tennessee.
