CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

Fugitive Files has reached a milestone, plus one.

Demetrius Jackson was arrested this weekend in Chatham county. Jackson was wanted for failing to register as a sex offender and violating his probation. Investigators also say he attempted to run from officers.

Before Jackson was profiled, Chatham County Sheriff's say they didn't know where he might be.

"He is a threat to your community if we can't find him," says Investigator Frank Rollins of the Chatham County Sheriff's Department. "We don't have an idea of where he is right now, then it's like a needle in a haystack. He could strike at any given time anywhere."

Jackson is the 50th suspect arrested after being profiled on News 3's Fugitive Files.

But authorities weren't done picking up suspects.

John Langley Williams was arrested this weekend.

Williams is accused of violating his probation and being a convicted felon carrying a firearm.

Williams is the 51st suspect arrested after being profiled on Fugitive Files.
