BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A fugitive with a history of evading sex offender registration in Texas and Louisiana has been captured.

Attorney General James Caldwell, in a news release Thursday, said 27-year-old Kentrell Debose was arrested Tuesday in Shreveport. He was booked into the Caddo Parish Jail and is awaiting extradition to Harrison County, Texas, where he’s wanted for failure to comply with the Texas sex offender registry.

Debose also is wanted by the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections for a parole violation after being convicted in 2011 of failing to comply with Louisiana sex offender registry laws, as well as for illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon and possessing a stolen firearm.
