HAYS COUNTY — The Caldwell County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) has announced that Edward Guidry, a suspect considered “armed and dangerous” previously seen in Martindale, is in custody.

According to officials, at 3:40 p.m. on June 16, Guidry was seen in a Martindale convenience store getting into the back of a stolen vehicle.

The CCSO received information on Monday, June 21, that Arkansas Police have Guidry in custody after police made contact with him on I-40 in Crawford County, Arkansas.

In a press release, the CCSO said that Guidry was wanted in Oklahoma and has pointed a firearm at law enforcement in the past. Officials believe he was trying to travel to Martindale to see family in the area that has a lifetime protective order issued against him. 

“Edward James Guidry is no longer a threat to Caldwell County citizens,” the CCSO said in a Facebook post.
