Family of wanted man says armed agents were too much

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Yesterday we told you armed federal agents surrounded a home in Castle Hayne as they tried to execute an arrest warrant. The man they were looking for, Gary Canady, was not in the home, and today the US Marshals Service continues to look for him.

This 25-year-old Canady’s criminal record that goes all the way back to his first offense, breaking and entering, in 2002. Over the years Canady has racked up other charges, including driving while impaired, several drug charges and assault on a female just to name a few.

The US Marshals Service says Canady has also violated the terms of his probation three times this year. That’s is what prompted federal and local law enforcement to surround Canady’s home on McDougald Drive Tuesday. He was not home, and marshals left empty handed.

Wednesday we talked to Canady’s family over the phone. They did not want to go on camera, but they did comment on Tuesdays event saying, “It was all unnecessary. All they had to do was ring the doorbell.”

The family says Canady’s father was inside the home asleep, which is why he did not hear the federal agents’ request to come out. Two hours later agents got in touch with him and searched the house.

The Canadys say they understand that their son is wanted for missing a court date, but they think the armed agents were little much.
The family says they do not know where their son is, but they are confident that he will turn himself in soon.
