Fugitive apprehended in South Austin


UPDATE: The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force says Khalvin Ray Nobles was captured in South Austin Thursday afternoon.

Tips about his location had been coming in sporadically since his story was broadcast on CBS Austin's Marshals' Most Wanted segment, authorities say.

A full day of surveillance resulted his apprehension near the Matthews Lane and Cannonleague Drive intersection.



The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force is searching for Khalvin Ray Nobles after he skipped out on his probation.

Nobles was sentenced to nearly five years in prison in 2012 for illegally possessing a firearm.

Last month he was released on the condition of three years of probation.

"He's been out approximately 30 days and has already violated six conditions on his supervised release," said U.S. Deputy Marshal Brandon Filla with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.

A warrant for his arrest says he failed to notify authorities about an address change.

"He failed three drug tests where he tested positive for marijuana and cocaine," said Filla.

Nobles also violated a condition to not associate with felons and did not attend assigned substance abuse counseling.

Filla said his criminal history shows a pattern of drug abuse.

"He's got a burglary and he's also resisted arrested, you know, the common criminal history," said Filla.

The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force believes Nobles is hiding out in Austin.

He is 5'8" tall and weighs about 175 pounds

"On his left hand he has a cursive signature of his name and also on the left side of his chest on his peck he also has a tattoo that says Tyler," said Filla.
