‘Most Wanted’ lumper apprehended in Phoenix


After a twisting series of events that included a reporchavesarrestted call from an over-the-road hauler stating a fugitive featured in August on the ‘America’s Most Wanted’ television program was in the cab of his truck, the Phoenix New Times reports that Michael Chaves (pictured), wanted for questioning about the April 2009 murder of then-fellow lumper/sometime driver Dale Anderson at a truckstop in Branford, Conn., was apprehended Sunday, Dec. 27, in Phoenix.

He’d reportedly been attempting to force his way into the back door of a house in Phoenix. For more, visit this page on the AMW TV show’s website.
