America's Most Wanted Suspect Nabbed In Eastern Carolina

A man profiled on the television show America's Most Wanted has been captured here in Eastern Carolina.

Halifax County deputies arrested Jermaine Wilson originally for driving a four wheeler on a highway.

Deputies say they were suspicious of the identity of the man they arrested. so they planned to fingerprint him at the Sheriff's Office. That's when he told deputies "You got me...I'm on American's Most Wanted because I am wanted by the FBI for murder in New York."

Sure enough, a check with the FBI confirmed the story and now the 35-year-old man is in the Halifax County Jail without bond.

    This just goes to show how dumb these criminals are. They know that they are wanted on a big time charge, but then they do little stupid stuff to draw the police's attention. Driving a 4 wheeler on the road. Or driving around with a headlight or tailight out on thier car. Dumb! Or speeding. Or failing to stop at a traffic signal. How dumb can you be.

    I hope that they keep that SOB out of NC. He has got to be real stupid for not riding out on a road with a four-wheeler, but doing it after commiting a murder. How much more stupid can he be?

    Sounds like he just got tired of running and told on himself! However, glad he did. We need the bad guys off the street. Kill one and you may kill two, three, four, etc
