CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

Less than a day after he was profiled on News 3's Fugitive Files, a viewer's tip helped put a drug suspect behind bars.

William Ragan was arrested by Chatham County Sheriff's over the weekend.

Sheriff's investigators say a viewer's tip led them to Ragan's latest location.

Ragana is the 53rd suspect arrested after being profiled on Fugitive Files.

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

This week's Fugitive Files suspect is a drug user turned drug seller, now wanted by Chatham County Sheriff's.

William Ragan has a long criminal history, and several mugshots on record.

Investigators say he has been a drug user, now he's accused of selling drugs as well, and back on the run.

"A lot of times if they stay under the radar, if no one sees them with their own eyes, its hard to put hands on them," says Investigator Ronald Brotz of the Chatham County Sheriff's Department.

Ragan is 6' 3" 160 lbs, and could be staying along Whitfield avenue, Ottawa Drive or near Quacco Road.

Investigators have been looking for Ragan, who is also wanted for contempt of court, and now need your help.

"When you are looking for these guys you really have to talk to people and if they don't lie to you, you can get some good information" explains Investigator Brotz. "The public's role is the key because we can't be everywhere. We can't do everything. We're trying to put these guys in jail, but its up to the public as well. They've got to protect themselves, and the way to protect themselves is put criminals in jail."

If you can help find William Ragan, call Chatham County Sheriff's or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.

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