Dodge County sheriff’s deputies booked Robert Allen, of Fort Lauderdale, into the jail in Eastman after members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested him Wednesday.
“They got some information he was up in Eastman, possibly staying with his sister,” said Deputy U.S. Marshal John Edgar, supervisor of the task force out of Macon and Savannah.
Officers surveilled the sister’s house and she was cooperative when officers came looking for him and arrested him, Edgar said.
“It was uneventful,” he said.
Allen, also known as “Big Rob” and “Fat Boy,” was captured on surveillance video at Deerfield Beach’s Riva Motorsports with also-indicted Dedrick Williams, minutes before the rapper was robbed and shot to death as he left the parking lot on June 18.
