CMPD Catches Monitor-Removing Fugitive

Fifty-one year-old Keith Allen Murray was arrested Thursday morning on University City Boulevard. Murray had been wanted by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police after he removed his electronic monitoring bracelet on Sunday. He was found by police while they were searching for Eric Dwayne Jones, another fugitive that had removed his electronic monitoring device.

Until Sunday, Murray had been wearing the monitor since he was released from jail on April 12 when he posted bond. He had been arrested on charges larceny and breaking and entering. Since his April 12 release, Murray was arrested twice more, once for assault charges. He is currently being jailed in Mecklenburg County.
