Just a day after being profiled on News 3's Fugitive Files, a wanted marijuana suspect called to turn himself in.

Reginald Hightower was wanted by Chatham County Sheriff's for contempt of court connected to marijuana charges.

Hightower called Sheriff's Friday to turn himself in.

Reginald Hightower is the 58th Fugitive Files suspect arrested after being profiled.

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

Assault suspects, drug dealers, sex offenders, 57 of them all off the streets thanks to you and Fugitive Files.

This time, a man who got out of jail, only to go on the run again.

Reginald Hightower is 29 years old and fresh out of jail on marijuana charges. And already wanted again.

"He was released in May of 2013," explains Deputy Ronald Brotz of the Chatham County Sheriff's Office. "He was in jail, supposed to show up for court to answer those charges, haven't seen him since."

Chatham County Sheriffs say Hightower's marijuana history makes him dangerous on the street.

"Marijuana usually leads to other drugs that's why they call it a gateway. They use cocaine, crack, meth, heroin," said Deputy Brotz.

Reginald Hightower is 5'6" 151 pounds, may have medium length hair with : small braids" in it - or a close shaven head.

He was known to stay in East Savannah, but may also be in Atlanta.
 
"Anybody who has a warrant on them you want to get them off the street and let the judge deal with them. Let the system handle them as they may."

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

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

"Mr Hightower come here, come talk to me, otherwise we will be seeing each other soon enough."
