Aug. 16, 2013 — The Carter County Sheriff's office apprehended a wanted fugitive on Friday evening.

Operating on an anonymous tip, Sheriff Casey Brammell and Deputies Greg Gillum and Matt Morrison arrested Billy Barker, 48, of Grayson, on outstanding warrants.

The CCSO and FIVCO Area Drug Enforcement task force recently distributed wanted posters for Barker via social media.

According to the posters, Barker was wanted on warrants for intimidation of a judicial officer and drug trafficking. CCSO also said that because of Barker's history of violence and extensive criminal background that he should be considered armed and dangerous.

CCSO located Barker on 4th Street in Grayson. He is currently lodged in the Carter County Detention Center.
