In the late hours of Friday, July 15th,2011, Deputies from the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office put together a plan of action which led to the combined efforts of the LCSO, Department of Public Safety and the U.S. Marshal’s Service. With this combined effort, Law Enforcement Officers were able to locate and capture John Robert McComb, a dangerous wanted fugitive from Liberty and Montgomery Counties.
No one was injured as a result of this operation. Additional arrests were made as a result of this joint effort and investigation. The identity of those arrested have not been processed for release at this time, as the investigation is continuing. However, Sheriff Patterson and members of the LCSO wish to sincerely thank members of the combined media and citizens who provided information which was vital to the success of this operation and a peaceful resolution to a long and difficult search.
