We were told late last night that the federal fugitive that was being sought by the US Marshals Office and the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department, was apprehended last night. Jesse L. Duncan, 38 of Harriman, was arrested by the Sheriff’s Department and Marshal’s from the US Marshals office on Harriman Highway.
Duncan was stopped on Saturday by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Department in the Norwood community of Oliver Springs. Duncan fled the scene on foot and a chase ensued which led to Deputy Stephen Carroll being hit by a car on Tri-County Boulevard receiving a concussion, a laceration to the head and a broken leg. He is now home and recovering and will be ok.
Duncan had walked away from a halfway house in Knoxville and was being sought by the US Marshals Service. We’re working to find out what he was in the halfway house for. And we will share more information when we learn of it.
Duncan has a lengthy criminal history as this 2015 story from WATE shows, he was part of a large burglary ring in Morgan and Roane County’s. Roane County Sheriff’s Office looking for owners of stolen property (wate.com)
