James and Jennifer Crumbley captured

James and Jennifer Crumbley, the parents of a teen accused of killing four students in a shooting at a Michigan high school, were captured early Saturday, several hours after the U.S. Marshals announced a reward of $10,000 each for information leading to their arrests.

The fugitives were arrested in a commercial building in Detroit that housed artwork, Detroit Police Chief James E. White told a news conference. White said the couple “were aided in getting into the building,” and that a person who helped them may also face charges, The Associated Press reported via NPR.

Authorities had been looking for the couple since Friday afternoon after they failed to appear in court.

The Crumbley’s attorney, Shannon Smith, said the pair had left town earlier in the week “for their own safety.” Smith told The AP they would be returning to Oxford to be arraigned.

However, authorities said the Crumbleys “appeared to be hiding” in the building where they were found. They appeared to be “distressed” when they were captured.

“Head down… just very upset,” White said of one of the parents.

The couple was expected to be booked into the Oakland County Jail, according to the report.
