US Marshals have taken the 38th Fugitive Files suspect off the streets.

Jahrell Ulmer was picked up in Savannah Monday evening.

Ulmer was wanted in both Garden City and Savannah for a series of charges including Aggravated Assault, Theft by receiving property, and participation in gang activity.

=================================================================

This week, with your help, the 35th and 36th suspects featured on Fugitive Files are behind bars.

Can you help catch number 37?

Jahrell Ulmer is wanted on Aggravated Assault charges.  

But Garden City Police say this suspect started out as a victim himself back in January.

"There was a shooting at 4123 3rd Street," explained Sgt Kurtis Purtee. "Officers arrived on the scene and were told there was a man shot in the head and the front steps of the residence. Officers got there, found numerous shell casings and a black male laying on the ground. We later identified him as Jahrell Ulmer."

But Ulmer was hardly innocent in this case.

"The story that we are getting is that Ulmer went to the residence prepared to do some sort of home invasion or retribution," said Sgt Purtee. "Either to the people in that residence or near that residence. So he came there gloved up with an assault type gun and was ready to handle business."

Jahrell Ulmer is 20 years old, a convicted felon, and considered armed and dangerous.  

He is possibly armed with an assault weapon, and may be connected to a massive car theft ring in Savannah and Chatham County.

"He's got connections, rides, and if he doesn't have a ride I'm sure he's out there stealing one," said Purtee.

If you know where Jahrell Ulmer may be, call Garden City Police or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.  

Remember, if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
