2 of 3 Fugitives In Detroit Drug Case Captured

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Federal authorities say they've arrested two of three men sought since they didn't appear in a Detroit courtroom to hear the verdict in a major drug trial.

U.S. Marshals spokesman Robert C. Watson tells The Associated Press that Carlos Powell was captured Wednesday night in Missouri and his brother Eric Powell was found in Georgia. Watson says both had a large amount of cash and Carlos Powell had a gun.

The Powells and Earnest Proge Jr. were missing since May 12 when they didn't return to court to hear the guilty verdict. Watson says authorities still are working to find Watson. Authorities seized more than $21 million during the drug investigation.

Watson says the Powells could face more charges where they were caught or be returned to Michigan.
