CHICAGO GANG FUGITIVE SOUGHT

Robert D. Grant, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is asking for the public’s help in locating a suspected Chicago gang member, who is wanted for violation of Federal drug laws.

GEORGE BROWN, age 26, whose last known address was 2100 South Kildare in Chicago, has been the subject of a nationwide manhunt coordinated by the Chicago FBI since December of 2008, when he was charged by a Federal Grand Jury in Chicago with distributing both wholesale and personal user quantities of crack cocaine.

According to the indictment, BROWN was part of a drug-trafficking organization centered on the west side of Chicago, which distributed illicit drugs on behalf of the Conservative Vice Lords street gang. The operation was centered in the vicinity of 18th Street and Pulaski Road, an area known as the “Spot”. BROWN was one of fourteen suspected gang members and associates charged in connection with this investigation and is one of only two defendants in the case who is still at-large.

BROWN, who is also known as “GB”, is described as a black/male, 26 years of age, 6’ 2” tall, medium build, with black hair, brown eyes and was last known to be wearing a full beard. BROWN has an extensive criminal history, including firearms and weapons charges. As such, BROWN should be considered Armed and Dangerous.

Anyone recognizing BROWN or having any information about his current whereabouts is asked to call either the Chicago FBI at (312) 421-6700 or any law enforcement agency.

The public is reminded that an indictment is not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
