FBI Agents Search for Gang Gun Runner

Posted:

The battle against gangs and guns is a never ending one for police and the FBI, and they are asking for your help in tracking down fugitive Marcus Jefferson.

Jefferson was one of 15 people charged with federal and state crimes for illegally transporting guns into Illinois to supply gangs on Chicago's South and West sides. The investigation began in 2010 and resulted in 13 arrests in December, but Jefferson and another defendant evaded capture.

FBI Special Agent Ricardo Pagan says investigators were able to recover a total of 48 weapons, including handguns, shotguns and assault rifles which were sold to undercover operatives for anywhere from 250 to 16-hundred dollars.

Pagan says Jefferson's role was in the illegal sale of a firearm. Jefferson is a convicted felon who has eight felony arrests and five convictions. He is considered armed and dangerous due to his involvement in firearms sales, home invasions andthe possession of firearms.

Jefferson's last known address was 13028 South Martin Luther King Drive in Chicago, and he has significant ties to the area so we believe there's a good chance that me may still be in the area.

Here now is what the FBI says Marcus Jefferson looks like:

  • He is described as a black male.
  • 31 years old.
  • He's five feet four inches tall and and weighs about 185 pounds.
  • He has brown eyes and may have either black dreadlocks or short hair, and he has a goatee.
  • He has a tattoo of a cross on his lower left arm and a panther on his lower right arm.

He is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him call police.
