The statement said Thacker was located at a residence in Graves County, which borders Tennessee.

Thacker was taken to the Graves County jail on a charge of being a fugitive from another state.

Police did not release further information on the charges in Tennessee. A message left with the Sumner County Sheriff's Office wasn't immediately returned.
