Fugitive and two others arrested on warrants.

On July 5, 2018 Investigators with Giles County Sheriff’s Department obtained information regarding the location of Courtney Adam Thompson. Thompson was wanted in Giles County on suspicion of Aggravated Burglary, Theft, and theft of motor vehicle. Thompson age 41 of Huntsville, Alabama was also wanted by authorities in Madison and Coffee Counties Alabama. Information was forwarded to the Sheriff’s Department that Mr. Thompson was armed and had the potential of being dangerous. Mr. Thompson had supposedly encountered a bounty hunter in Madison County Alabama and exchanged gunfire with the bounty hunter while attempting to apprehend him.
Sheriff Kyle Helton activated the Giles County Special Response Team and requested manpower assistance from the Maury County Sheriff’s Department. The team members went to a location on Lloyd Road and confirmed the identity of Mr. Thompson and three other individuals. The Special Response Team arrested Mr. Thompson without incident. Also arrested were Latana Wheeler - Allgood and Lisa Mueller on unrelated probation violation warrants.
During a search of the premises, multiple items that had previously been reported stolen during various residential burglaries were located along with an approximately half an ounce of methamphetamine, marijuana, packaging for resale, drug paraphernalia, and a firearm.
All three individuals remain in the Giles County Jail, and the investigation into other crimes is ongoing.
Sheriff Kyle Helton praised the commitment and determination of the deputies assigned to the Special Response Team due to the terrain and inclement weather they encountered during the apprehension of these individuals. Sheriff Helton would also like to thank Giles County EMS, Giles County Rescue Squad and the Maury County Sheriff’s Department for their assistance in resolving this matter without further incident.
