McKamey and Davis received the FBI Director’s Award in a Monday ceremony.
According to the Calhoun Police Department:
The two officers were asked to enter into a wooded area near a home where an individual was believed to be living that escaped from a Virginia prison 27 years earlier.
While in the wooded area attempting to identify the suspect, they came in contact with him and subsequently arrested the suspect.
The suspect had lived in Murray County since a few days after his escape, using the name Eric Coleman. His true identity is Richard Boucher.
The awards were presented by Supervisory Senior Resident Agent Gary Will and Special Agent Tim Coakley.
“This is just one more feat that has been accomplished by the close working relationship between local agencies and the federal agencies in this area,” said Calhoun Police Chief Garry Moss.
