TBI most wanted Lonnie Vann captured

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - A Jacksboro man who was added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's top 10 most wanted list last week has been captured.

Authorities say 44-year-old Lonnie Lee Vann was arrested without incident Friday night in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina following a traffic stop.

Vann is wanted by the Campbell County Sheriff's Office for an armed robbery earlier this month in LaFollette, Tennessee.

The former school teacher was being held in the Myrtle Beach Jail without bond pending a hearing before a judge. He is expected to be held on a fugitive from justice warrant until he can be extradited to Tennessee.
