One of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top Ten Most Wanted was captured Thursday morning in Morristown. Nathan McCollum had been added to the most wanted list only two days prior and was Sevier County’s most wanted.
McCollum, 31, of Sevierville, was located at a house on Goodson Street and taken into custody after a joint investigation involving U.S. Marshalls, the T.B.I. and the Great Smoky Mountain Fugitive Task Force.
McCollum was reportedly arrested on a litany of charges including violation of probation, attempted aggravated kidnapping, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, violation of an order of protection and several theft charges.
According to reports, McCollum removed his GPS monitor on July 13 after being discharged from a drug treatment program in Alabama. Police and the Tennessee Department of Corrections officials found the GPS monitor in Chattanooga the following day. McCollum is being held without bond in the Sevier County Jail.
