Days after the hotline shut down for the night, arrests continued in the News Channel 11 Monday's Most Wanted Roundup. So far, 19 suspects have been captured as a result of our roundup.

The suspects who were featured in our roundup and arrested based off tips include Roger Bentley, Joshua Ramsey , Travis Copas, April Eppler, Jason Cavin, Frankie Smith, Steven Anderson, Ashley D'Angelo, Gabriel Cross, Joey Miller, Ashley Hatley, Jessica Longworth, Clinton Vance, Tara Hopson, Josh Sutherland and Jonathan Driscoll.

Officials say one of the suspects was captured at the doctor’s office last week. Eppler was arrested Thursday afternoon by Washington County Deputies at Doctor’s Care on Market Street in Johnson City.

Cavin was awaken by Washington County deputies early Thursdaymorning after officers received a tip that he was at a home in Carter County. 

Sullivan County deputies said they were able to arrest Smith on a tip they received during our show Monday evening. Authorities say Smith tried to sneak out a back door, but he did not succeed. 
According to Sullivan County spokesperson, Leslie Earheart, deputies were told that Steven Anderson was already incarcerated in the Keen Mountain Correctional Center in Virginia. Sullivan County authorities will send Anderson the warrants so that he is served there. Once he is released from there, he will be transported to the Sullivan County jurisdiction. 

During our roundup, Cross was arrested by Sullivan County deputies in Bristol, TN. D'Angelo, Miller and Hatley were arrested by deputies in Washington County. However, Miller was wanted on charges in Sullivan County.

D'Angelo was wanted in Washington County on charges of violation of probation for criminal impersonation and driving on suspended license and theft under $500.00.
