Craig Petties, 28, had been on the U.S. Marshal's most wanted list since 2004, but now he's on the Marshal's captured list.
Officials have long suspected Petties was in Mexico and it appears they're right. Sources say Petties was captured there Monday, although details surrounding his arrest are not being released.
The U.S. Marshals say Petties is the head of a large drug organization that distributed more than 1,000 kilos of cocaine in Memphis, Jackson, Mississippi, and Atlanta.
Petties lived a lavish lifestyle. Investigators say they've seized two homes valued at more than a million dollars and 20 luxury vehicles.
But he was also considered armed and dangerous.
Marshal's say he's a member of the street gang Ganster Disciples, who are reported to have committed a number of violent crimes. In fact, the feds have said Petties may hold the key to a number of unsolved murders in South Memphis.
The Feds have said they want to question Petties in the 2005 deaths of James Mabry and Angela Macklin, who were found dead in Haywood County.
They have also wanted to ask him about a triple homicide on Kansas Street.
Now, it seems they'll have their chance.
