A Hopkinsville fugitive has been taken into custody Thursday afternoon thanks to an anonymous tipster who contacted the Hopkinsville-Christian County Crime Stoppers tip line.
Hopkinsville Police say the anonymous tipster told authorities that 35-year old Michael Edward Brewer, who was featured as this week’s Fugitive of the Week was on Fort Campbell working with the post’s 5th Group.
Acting on the tip, Hopkinsville Police partnered with Fort Campbell’s Provost Marshal’s Office and the Christian County Sheriff’s Office in locating Brewer, which led to his arrest.
Brewer was taken into custody without incident and was booked into the Christian County Jail for failing to appear in court for charges of felony possession of a controlled substance, 2nd degree possession of a controlled substance, illegal possession of a legend drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police say the anonymous tipster will receive a cash reward from the local Crime Stoppers organization for their tip that led to Brewer’s arrest.
