JOHNSON CITY – A man who was added to the TBI’s ‘Top 10 Most Wanted’ list Thursday is now in custody. Justin Wayne Pridemore was captured this morning.

Pridemore (DOB 9/22/93) was wanted by the Greeneville Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to face charges of Aggravated Sexual Battery. That charge stems from an incident involving a 5-year-old child.

After receiving a tip that Pridemore was possibly at a home on Forester Lane in Jonesborough, TBI Special Agents requested assistance from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. This morning, deputies responded to the home and confirmed Pridemore was at the residence. He was taken into custody without incident.

A current booking photo was not available at the time of this release.
