Phillips was wanted in Walton County, FL for the 2010 Sexual Abuse of a four year old child that was left in his care.
Task force investigators were able to determine that Phillips was living in an apartment in Andalusia and early this morning the arrest team moved in and arrested Phillips.
“Phillips did not resist when he was taken in to custody this morning” said U.S. Marshal Art Baylor.
“One of the reasons for creating the regional fugitive task forces was to assist state and local law enforcement agencies in apprehending sexual predators like Phillips.
