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.
