U.S. Marshals in Arkansas caught a 43-year-old West Texas man Friday, Jan. 24, who has been hiding from the law for more than 18 years.

Christopher Reuterskiold was arrested without incident in the Faulkner County area by Marshals with information provided by the North Texas Fugitive Task Force, according to a U.S. Marshals Service news release.

Reuterskiold had an address in Greenbrier, according to Faulkner County jail records. The task force found Reuterskiold through a female associate, according to the release.

Reuterskiold was living in Arkansas under the name Christopher Rhodes.

Reuterskiold was convicted in 1990 of aggravated sexual assault of a child in Deaf Smith County, Texas and was placed on probation. He violated parole in 1996 after being charged with narcotics and weapons charges, and was on the run ever since, burning his birth certificate, IDs and other personal documentation.

Deaf Smith County is about 60 miles southwest of Amarillo, Texas

He told investigators he lived in Texas, Wisconsin and Arkansas during his time on the lam.

The task force is comprised of law enforcement agencies including The Texas Department of Public Safety, the Texas Attorney General’s Office, FBI and the Lubbock, Hale, and Bailey county sheriff’s offices.
