A former Alabama police officer facing human trafficking and other charges has been apprehended in New Hampshire, the U.S. Marshals Service said Saturday.

Joshua Matthew Davidson, 30, whose last known address was in Fort Deposit, Alabama, was located and arrested without incident at an apartment in the coastal town of Hampton at about 6:30 p.m. Friday.

Davidson was being sought on three arrest warrants issued on June 25 by the Dallas County, Alabama District Court, including allegations of human trafficking, kidnapping and sodomy, according to the Marshals Service.

Alabama courts requested that bail be set at $250,000.

Davidson was taken to the Rockingham County Jail in Brentwood where he was processed and held without bail as a fugitive from justice. He is scheduled to appear in Hampton District Court on Monday, authorities say.

It was not clear if Davidson had an attorney.
