A Grundy County man who was added to the TBI's Top Ten Most Wanted list on Tuesday was captured Wednesday in Arkansas.

Investigators say they think McCurry went to Arkansas to stay with a friend.

Revenue Collections Drop
AP Thursday June 12, 2014

Tennessee Finance Commissioner Larry Martin says the state's revenue collections recorded negative growth in May.
Martin said Wednesday that overall revenues were $40 million less than expected. He attributed the poor numbers mainly to a legal change in the timing of business tax payments, and the payment of a large sales tax settlement.
The state's general fund fell short by $42 million last month.
Corporate franchise and excise taxes were $2.2 million below the budgeted estimate for May, and sales taxes were $10.5 million less than expected.
