One of sheriff's most wanted fugitives nabbed

By Linda Looney-Bond


The Clayton County Sheriff's Office said a fugitive on its 12 most wanted list was captured Tuesday.

Dayne Orlando Brown, 25, was arrested by the Sheriff's Office Fugitive Squad Tuesday morning at his Morrow home, located at 3037 Botany Drive, according to Sgt. Sonja Sanchez, a spokesperson for the office.

Brown is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of terroristic threats, Sanchez said in a statement.

The aggravated assault charge stems from an incident on Oct. 4, 2007 at 976 Forest Ave., in Forest Park, according to the sheriff's office's web site.

Brown's arrest was the result of cooperation between the sheriff's office and Clayton County citizens, Sanchez said.

"An anonymous tip was received from someone who observed this suspect on our 'Most Wanted' posters located in the lobby area of the Clayton County Jail," Sanchez said in the statement. "Sheriff Kem Kimbrough extends a hearty thank you to the citizen who paid attention and took the extra step to do the right thing."

Brown was arrested without incident, Sanchez said. He had been on the most wanted list for approximately three months, she said.

Brown is scheduled for a first-appearance hearing in Clayton County Magistrate Court today at 1:30 p.m., according to court records.
