Wednesday afternoon, Lesandru "Precious" Webster, 25, was located in Marshall County by agents of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, deputies of the U.S. Marshals Service, detectives of the Lewisburg Police Department, and officers of the Columbia Police Department.

Based on a tip provided to the 1-800-TBI-FIND line, Webster was taken into custody without incident at 230 Holly Grove Road, Lewisburg. She was transported to the Maury County jail and is being held without bond. There was a $1,000 reward for information leading to her arrest.

Webster was wanted by the Columbia Police Department and the TBI for her participation with several other individuals in a scheme using Facebook to lure a robbery victim. Around July 19, a male victim was kidnapped and forced at gunpoint to withdraw cash from an ATM. Webster had outstanding arrest warrants from Columbia Police Department for Especially Aggravated Kidnapping and Aggravated Robbery. On July 31, she was added to the TBI Most Wanted list.

Webster has a violent criminal history of robbery, aggravated burglary, theft, and drug charges. Additionally, she is a confirmed gang member of the Gangster Disciples. She was out on parole from a prison sentence which started in 2010 and was due to end in 2018.
