Tuesday afternoon, just before 1:00 p.m., 27-year-old Christopher Fugate, was apprehended at a home in Hicksville, by the US Marshals Service Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Taskforce.   

Fugate was wanted out of Steuben County for allegedly violating terms of his probation following a class B felony conviction of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor in 2012.  

Fugate was released from the Indiana Department of Correction in early January of 2015 and placed on probation in Steuben County where Fugate allegedly failed to comply with his probation officer.  Fugate also allegedly failed to register as a sex or violent offender following his release from prison, therefore, additional charges may be filed.  

Fugate was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio and is awaiting extradition back to Steuben County.
