Five suspects on the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office’s Most Wanted list, including a convicted sex offender, were apprehended last week by the Criminal Warrants Division and Murfreesboro police.
Sheriff Robert Arnold said the media partners with the Sheriff’s Office to list the Most Wanted suspects each week. Citizens who view the Most Wanted list notify the Sheriff’s Office at 615-898-7877 if they know where a suspect is.
“We ask citizens to call us if they know of a suspect’s location,” Arnold said. “Don’t approach the suspects. They could be dangerous.”
