A man wanted for attempted murder in Ohio is arrested in Valdosta on Saturday.
According to police, Marlin Koonce was arrested Saturday night after Valdosta Police responded to a domestic dispute in the 600 block of Troup Street.
When police arrived, officers ran the man's name and discovered Koonce was wanted by police in East Cleveland, Ohio, for attempted murder with a firearm, felonious assault with a firearm, aggravated robbery with a firearm, robbery with a firearm, petty theft, and having a firearm while under disability.
Police said Koonce was in Valdosta because he knows someone who lives in the city and was on the run from Ohio Authorities.
"Apparently sometime during the investigation, the officers noticed something wasn't right about this person so they checked his name on the computer, NCIC, and found out he was wanted," said Lt. Aaron Kirk of the Valdosta Police Department. "Also, they looked on the internet and found out there was some stories out of Ohio about this incident occurred with the subject."
Koonce is currently being held at the Lowndes County Jail, awaiting extradition.
