CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

An alert viewer helped put a wanted sex offender behind bars.

News 3 profiled Rodriguez Coleman just last week.

He was convicted of Statutory Rape in 2011, and was on probation, but hadn't been seen since October of 2012.

After seeing his profile on News 3's Fugitive Files, a viewer called in a tip to Crimestoppers, and Coleman was picked up by investigators.

Coleman has now added probation violation to his list of charges.

Another Fugitive Files suspect, Donald Fennell, is also back in custody.

Fennell was one of 8 men still wanted from a mass drug sweep by Savannah-Chatham CNT back in December.

Fennell and Coleman are the 35th and 36th suspects arrested after being profiled on Fugitive Files.

If you think you can help put a wanted suspect behind bars, call Crimestoppers at (912)234-2020 right away. And remember, your call is anonymous and if it leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
