A man on Detroit’s Most Wanted list, who is accused of stealing vehicles out of the Detroit area, has been arrested in Mid-Michigan.

The U.S. Marshals Service confirms that Timothy Hobson, 28, was taken into custody on Dec. 3.

Investigators said a viewer tip, in collaboration with Crime Stoppers of Michigan, lead the U.S. Marshals Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team (DFAT), Michigan State Police, Michigan Department of Corrections, and Dearborn Police to an apartment building in the 11000 block of Juniper Way in Grand Blanc.

Aaron Garcia, Supervisory Deputy U.S. Marshal, told TV5 that the tip came in and surveillance started early on Tuesday at the apartment building.

When officials tried to arrest Hobson he ran, but was taken into custody without incident, Garcia said.

Officials are investigating whether he stole any vehicles in the Mid-Michigan area.
