When deputies arrived at the home, Williams was present along with two acquaintances, Virgil Wilkerson (36) of Cordova, Alabama; and Tara Williams (30) of Mandeville. Williams attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended after a brief foot chase. He provided deputies with a fake name upon capture. Wilkerson and Williams admitted to harboring the fugitive and assisting him with utilizing an alias to conceal his identity.
“I am extremely pleased with the work of our deputies who immediately developed a plan to locate and apprehend the subject in the safest manner possible,” said Sheriff Randy Smith.
