Posted: Updated:

The Bay County Sheriff's Office and the United States Marshal Fugitive Task Force arrested a fugitive from justice yesterday when he was recognized while working out at a local gym.

Aaron Miguel Thompson was wanted by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office in Memphis, Tennessee, after he failed to appear on charges of Sexual Battery by an Authority Figure.

Information was developed that Thompson was living at 1406 Iowa Avenue in Lynn Haven, Florida. When the Task Force learned Thompson was spotted working out at a local gym they went to investigate. Surveillance was initiated and it was confirmed that it was Thompson's vehicle in the parking lot and, when Thompson left the gym, identification was established that it was indeed Thompson.

Thompson, DOB 2-16-70, was approached and taken into custody without incident in the parking lot. He has been booked into the Bay County Jail as a Fugitive from Justice with a hold for the Tennessee authorities.
