Agents with the U.S. Marshals Service arrested a Supply man wanted since last month.
Timothy Braddock, 21, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force just after 3 p.m. Thursday in the area of Seashore Hill Road in Supply, according to Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryan Konig.
Braddock has been charged with felony probation violation and resisting a public officer.
When U.S. Marshals arrived in the area, Braddock was getting into his vehicle. Task force officers tried to initiate a traffic stop and had to cut off his vehicle from moving, Konig said. Braddock reportedly tried to “escape by running into the task force vehicles,” Konig said. He was taken into custody without further incident. No injuries were reported.
According to a warrant issued on March 9, Braddock was charged as an absconder in violation the specific conditions of his probation.
The U.S. Marshals Violent Fugitive Task Force routinely takes violent probation cases, Konig said.
“Probation is a very big part of our task force,” Konig said. Officers look for the individuals when the warrants are issued and automatically bring in the case.”
The violent fugitive task force has been looking into the case since March 17, about a week after a probation violation warrant was issued, Konig said.
Braddock was convicted of felony conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon on Dec. 3, 2012, according to the N.C. Department of Corrections. He was given a suspended sentence and ordered to serve 36 months on probation.
He is being held at the Brunswick County jail under a $26,000 secured bond.
