Army's Most Wanted fugitive found and sentenced in Iowa

Posted: Updated:
DYERSVILLE (KWWL) -

One of the Army's Most Wanted fugitives, who was found hiding in plain sight in Iowa, has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Daryl Grigsby, 57, had been on the run since 2001 when he disappeared from federal supervised release in Rhode Island related to a 1990s bank robbery conviction. He began using the name and Social Security Number of another person and continued to do so until he was caught last year.

In March 2017, Grigsby was found living in Dyersville, Iowa just blocks from St. Francis Xavier Catholic School.

Before the bank conviction, disappearance and arrest in Iowa, Grigsby was convicted of aggravated assault while serving in the Army in the 1980s.  Following his conviction and while pending additional criminal charges, Grigsby ran from the Army. 

In September 2017, Grigsby pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated identity theft and one count of misuse of a Social Security Number.

Grigsby has been sentenced to 40 months in federal prison. He was also ordered to pay $19,401 in restitution to the Social Security Administration and $46,118.48 in restitution to the State of Iowa. 

Grigsby is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
