SHERMAN, Texas -- Reginald Campbell, one of three people accused in the robbery and murder of a Sherman hotel clerk on August 11, was captured in New York Friday morning -- more than 1,300 miles from the scene of the crime.

Sherman police Chief Zach Flores said Campbell, 24, was apprehended around 8 a.m. at an apartment in the New York City suburb of Mt. Vernon, in Westchester County.

Flores said his department is keen to find out where Campbell has been, and what he's been doing for the last two months.

"We will absolutely follow up on the investigation," Flores said.

This was a day of justice for the family of Brandon Hubert, the 32-year-old front desk clerk at the Quality Suites in Sherman who was murdered in August.

"I don't think my heart will ever be at rest, because that's my twin brother, and nothing can be done that will ever bring him back," Brent Hubert said.

Multiple agencies were said to be involved in the operation, including the U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force.

Earlier this week, Campbell was added to the list of Texas' 10 Most Wanted Fugitives.

He now faces multiple charges, including capital murder and unlawful flight. Chief Flores said Campbell will be extradited back to Grayson County, but that the process could take a couple of weeks.Investigators said Campbell and two female accomplices were involved in the robbery.

The women -- Karalyn Cross and Kikeya Grant -- are already in custody and are facing capital murder charges.

"The best feeling that we have is for the family, and that we are able to bring some sort of closure to them," Chief Flores said. "Them being aware that two suspects had been arrested, but yet one was still out and still left a void. So being able to do that for them.... that feels good.
