East Texas Fugitive Caught

Sidney Ira Campbell Sidney Ira Campbell

Ruston, LA (East Texas note) - A man who has been wanted by Texas authorities for eight years and is on both Texas' and America's most wanted list has been living in Lincoln Parish under the name of his deceased grandfather for about eight months.

Sheriff Mike Stone said a tip from an informant led to the arrest Tuesday night of Sidney Ira Campbell, who had been using the name William Moore until an acquaintance discovered his true identity.

Stone said the 25-year-old, who had eluded lawmen for eight years, is wanted on about a dozen charges in Texas and Louisiana.

Authorities say Campbell recently was indicted on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child following an accusation by his girlfriend's daughter. When police came to arrest him at his mother's home in Kilgore, Texas, he escaped into the woods behind the house. While fleeing, he reportedly assaulted two officers.

Campbell is in Rusk County custody now, and was arraigned this morning on $25,000 bond on assault of a public servant and $75,000 bond on sexual assault of a child charges. He has not made bond.

Information from the Associated Press and the Rusk County Sheriff's Department.
