AUTHORITY: Sheriff Dave Wedding
US Marshals and Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office deputies assigned to the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force with the assistance of the Kentucky State Police and the Evansville Police Department located and apprehended an escapee from the Christian County Kentucky Detention Center. Creadell Hubbard of Hopkinsville, KY was apprehended at a house in the 2400 block of Herbert Ave at approximately 1:50 AM this morning.
Hubbard escaped from the Christian County Detention Center in Kentucky on October 22nd. He was being held there on federal firearms charges stemming from an arrest in which he fled from law enforcement following a shooting and was found to be in possession of an AK-47 and body armor when apprehended. Hubbard had previously served a thirty year sentence in Kentucky for murder.
Shortly after his escape, a Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office deputy assigned to the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force developed information that Hubbard might come to Evansville. The investigation that followed led to locating Hubbard in a house on Herbert Avenue. Marshals Task Force members from Evansville and Kentucky surrounded the residence and EPD’s Bearcat was used to call Hubbard out from the house. Hubbard surrendered peacefully and was taken into custody without incident. He was taken back to Kentucky on a federal fugitive warrant.
