Lubbock Authorities Track Down, Arrest Wanted Fugitive

The search for a Lubbock man, wanted by U.S. Marshals is now over.

Tabroderick Craddock was taken into custody late Tuesday morning.  The U.S. Marshal's Office says tips from people watching media coverage helped locate Craddock. He was arrested just before 10 o'clock Tuesday morning at a house in the 2400 Block of Fulton Avenue.

Ronnie O'Neal with the U.S. Marshal's Office says law enforcement went to the house after receiving a tip. It took several moments for anyone to answer the door, but when they did Craddock surrendered peacefully. 

You'll recall, Craddock was accidentally released from prison after finishing his two year state prison term. He was supposed to start a six year federal sentence.  Craddock was involved in a home invasion robbery last summer. Over the last two years, a grand jury has indicted Craddock for evading arrest with a motor vehicle, assault of a public servant and tampering with government records.

Craddock's mother Elayne Thomas never heard from her son while he was out, but says he is not a dangerous man. 

"I just want them to stop saying the false accusations about my child. It is there fault that they released him so they need to stop," Thomas said.

Right now Craddock is being held at the Lubbock County Jail. He will be transferred to a federal prison within days. It is unknown at this time if any extra charges will be filed against Craddock.

Coming up on NewsChannel 11 at 5, 6 and 10 we'll hear from authorities who captured Craddock and reaction from his family.
