Deputy United States Marshal John Edgar said that the task force had learned earlier in the week that he may have been staying with relatives in Eastman, Ga. Edgar reportedly said that after conducting “a lot of surveillance over the last couple days,” Marshals approached the home Wednesday and arrested Allen at about 11:45 a.m.
The suspect is expected to be extradited to Broward County, Fla., within the next 10 days.
He had previously been named a person of interest in XXXTentacion’s murder case, and was one of four men indicted on first-degree murder charges last week.
XXXTentacion, born Jahseh Onfroy, died shortly after he was shot in Florida on June 18.
