Deputy Clay McCool escorts suspects Ethan Payne and William Rosenbaum into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center during a roundup Wednesday. Both were charged with violation of probation.

Thirty-seven wanted suspects, including a fugitive from New Hampshire, were apprehended Wednesday during a roundup involving local, state and federal officers through Rutherford County, said Sheriff Robert Arnold.

Suspect John Gebo, 28, of January Street in Murfreesboro was charged with being a fugitive from justice. He will be held until extradited to New Jersey.

Teams from Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office, La Vergne Police, the Tennessee Department of Correction Probation and Parole and the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force swept through the county before sunrise to catch the suspects.

“Those suspects who are abusing children, robbing people and burglarizing homes are the ones we concentrated on during this roundup,” Sheriff Arnold said. “We feel this roundup has made our community safer.”

Most of the suspects were felony offenders with a few suspects wanted for domestic assault.  Many of the suspects were convicted felons who violated the conditions of probation and parole.

Maj. Guy Goff, who supervises the Sheriff’s Criminal Warrants Division, said the teams used old-fashioned techniques and technology to locate the wanted suspects.

“We certainly appreciate the other agencies that assisted us,” Maj. Goff said.

State Probation and Parole Officer Jon Potocik said he was asked to do a roundup about one year ago with the Sheriff’s Office. After he met Warrants Capt. Terry McBurney, he was so impressed with his unit that he expressed that to his supervisors. Since then, Jon represented TDOC’s BOPP office as liaison attached to criminal warrants.

 “Our involvement together has assisted TDOC enhancing public safety through sound investigative practices and interagency cooperation,” Potocik said.
