Charles Spraberry was arrested just outside of DeRidder, in the vicinity of Charles Duttry Road, bringing an end to an intense overnight manhunt.

Sheriff Mark Herford said deputies located Spraberry after setting up a perimeter around the area and then intercepting him as he attempted to cross US 171.

The hunt for Spraberry began Thursday evening after authorities located a vehicle in the area that was reportedly stolen by Spraberry out of Texarkana, Texas.

Sheriff Mark Herford said deputies were then able to hone in on Spraberry’s location and establish a perimeter around that area.

Spraberry will remain in BPSO custody while awaiting extradition to Texas.

Spraberry is wanted by Texas authorities in connection with two people found dead in Cass County, Texas.
