U.S. Marshals confronted and arrested Dickens, who had previously fled from authorities. Dickens was leaving his home to take his kids to school when he saw the marshals and surrendered.
Authorities obtained a warrant from Nevada officials in January after they received an anonymous tip that Dickens was in the area. Dickens is a convicted felon and was charged with burglary.
40/29 News was at the scene of his arrest with exclusive access. Watch tonight at 5pm for more on the story.
Dickens is being processed and booked into the Benton County Jail. He has an extradition hearing next week.
Marshals also asked his wife for consent to search the home believing he has automatic weapons on his possession. As a convicted felon, authorities said it’s illegal for him to have any firearms. She declined.
