Cedar Rapids, IA -- The U.S. Marshals arrested today an Illinois man wanted on aggravated domestic battery charges in the state of Illinois.
Larry N. Tribble, 33, was wanted on charges stemming from an incident that occurred in late August in Bloomington, Illinois, in which a female victim was hospitalized, and subsequently underwent reconstructive surgery. Following the incident, the U.S. Marshals Service Central Illinois Fugitive Task Force was requested to assist in the hunt for Tribble. Members of the task force obtained information Tribble had likely fled to Cedar Rapids in an attempt to avoid apprehension and prosecution.
After receiving information of Tribble’s potential whereabouts, the Northern Iowa Fugitive Task Force (NIFTF) began the process of narrowing down a location. At approximately 12:30 p.m. today, NIFTF members acted on information that Tribble was in the vicinity of 8th Avenue and 10th Street SE, Cedar Rapids. Tribble was located hiding in a vehicle, and with the assistance of the Cedar Rapids Police Department, was arrested and transported to the Linn County Correctional Center. Tribble will remain at the Linn County Correctional Center, pending extradition back to Illinois.
