Press release from Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and High Springs Police Department
Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Investigators assigned to the U.S. Marshal Florida Fugitive Task Force developed information John K. Culp was in the Hammond, Louisiana area. Working in partnership with the New Orleans-based U.S. Marshals Task Force, they were able to share that information and Culp was located and arrested in Hammond.
Culp was wanted for an incident that occurred in High Springs on March 18. High Springs Police had initially responded to a report of a suspicious person.

After a large search involving multiple law enforcement agencies, Culp was not located.
High Springs Police were able to get warrants for Culp’s arrest, which included charges for Aggravated Battery on Law Enforcement, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Firearm or Ammunition by a Convicted Felon, Aggravated Fleeing or Eluding, and Resisting with Violence.
Culp will be extradited back to Alachua County to face the charges.
