It took a little over a month, but federal marshals have now caught up with all three of the men who jumped bond just before the guilty verdict in a major Detroit drug trial.
Earnest Proge Jr., 38, was taken into custody Wednesday night in the basement of a home in St. Louis, along with $7,000 in cash, reports the Detroit Free Press. A U.S. Marshals spokesman says a tip led to his arrest.
He had two more weeks of freedom than his codefendants, who were captured in Atlanta and St. Louis with a total of $760,000 in cash.
They could get as much as life terms when they are sentenced.
