Attorney General Nessel Statement on Apprehension of Escaped Murder Defendant Mobley

LANSING – Chadwick Shane Mobley, 42, was apprehended once again on Monday evening after he escaped the custody of a private transport company, Prisoner Transport Services, LLC, who was contracted to deliver him from Libby, Montana to the state of Michigan for arraignment.  

Mobley is wanted on three felony charges in connection with the 2011 murder of Andrea Eilber in Lapeer County. Mobley was recently apprehended on June 30th after he disappeared from his Utah residence following questioning by Michigan State Police.  

Multiple law enforcement agencies worked to secure Mobley, including local law enforcement, the Sanders County Sheriff’s Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and the U.S. Marshals Service. 

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued the following statement: 

“I am grateful to the many law enforcement officers involved on the scene and for the quick coordination of local, Michigan, Montana and Federal agents who helped to peacefully locate and apprehend Mobley.” 

"The failure of Prisoner Transport Services to safely and securely transport Mobley to Michigan placed the people of Northwestern Montana in considerable and grave danger.  This is not the work we expect on behalf of the Michigan Department of Attorney General and we have already begun a thorough review of the failures in this process."

Prisoner Transport Services, based in Nashville, Tennessee, is the only private transfer service available in Montana, and is required to be licensed, insured and meet the strict, federal standards as outlined in the Interstate Transportation of Dangerous Criminals Act of 2000.  

Special Agents with the Michigan Department of Attorney General will transport Mobley back to Michigan for his impending arraignment in Lapeer County.
