Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Keith Fields
And then there was one.

Limited details were released Wednesday about the arrest of fugitive Keith E. Fields in Linton, Ind., by members of the United States Marshals Office Fugitive Task Force on Monday.

After the arrest, Indiana State Police Officer Richard Effner brought Fields to the Clay County Justice Center for booking on the warrant charges from the Aug. 5 drug sweep, including felony charges of possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance and a misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia.

Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton confirmed Nicole J. Bond-Lange is the last remaining fugitive from the 40 suspects sought during the drug sweep.

Jail officials confirmed Wednesday evening that Fields was incarcerated on a $25,000 bond with 10 percent allowed and will appear for formal arraignment per the court calendar.

Heaton, who expects to hear more "good news" from the United States Marshals Office Fugitive Task Force within the next few days, told The Brazil Times, "(The task force is) out there, and they will continue looking until the last suspect is caught."
