A DeKalb County murder suspect living in Conyers under an alias was found and arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service and Rockdale County Sheriff's Office today.
Danion Perry Scott, who had been going by the name "Kevin," was found after living several months in Conyers.
On March 3, the U.S. Marshals Service contacted the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office after receiving a tip that a murder suspect was living in the Conyers area and began investigating.
U.S. Marshals Service and RCSO deputies went to a residence on Hickory Bend near Salem Road in Conyers on Monday afternoon and arrested Danion Perry Scott.
Scott, 34, had an active Homicide warrant from DeKalb County stemming from a May 2013 murder.
"Once the U.S. Marshals Service received information that their suspect was residing here in Rockdale County, they were able to quickly apprehend him thanks to the cooperative efforts of our two agencies working together," said Sheriff Eric Levett. "I hope that this apprehension will bring closure to the victim's family and friends. This apprehension should demonstrate to criminals that Rockdale County in not the place to do crime or to hide from justice. The RCSO is determined to be relentless in fighting crime and ensuring justice regardless of where the crime is committed."
Scott was transported to the DeKalb County Jail by RCSO deputies without incident.
