New 15 Most Wanted Fugitive: Johnny Mack BROWN

In 1997, BROWN shot an armored car guard three times during a robbery near Athens, Georgia.

He was subsequently apprehended, convicted and sentenced to life in prison plus 70 years. In 1998, BROWN escaped and committed more crimes in three states, including beating an 84 year-old man whose home he had burglarized. On October 13, 2008, BROWN and fellow prisoner Michael TWEEDEL escaped from the state prison in Chatooga County, Georgia. Again, BROWN allegedly broke into a home, kidnapped a woman and forced her to drive him to a location near Athens, GA.

BROWN is a career criminal with a history of violence. He has demonstrated that he is willing to use deadly force against innocent victims to accomplish his crimes and remain at large. He should be considered extremely dangerous.

REWARD: A reward of up to $25,000 is offered for information leading directly to BROWN’s arrest.

NOTICE: Before arrest, verify warrant through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). If subject is arrested or whereabouts known, contact the nearest U.S. Marshals Service office or call the U.S. Marshals Service Communications center at 1-800-336-0102.
