The VCSO and the United States Marshals Service apprehended 34-year-old Jesse Wilson Sunday afternoon, the sheriff's office said.

The Evansville man reportedly tried to flee but was caught by a sheriff's office K-9 in the woods in the 3200 block of Kleitz Road.

He had a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly conspiring to deal methamphetamine after he was indicted by a federal jury.

The indictments were unveiled at a news conference Thursday morning. Fifteen of the accused were in federal custody at the time of the announcement, but Wilson and his sister, 37-year-old Kimberly Wilson, also of Evansville, were believed to be on the run.

The siblings were part of a group accused of distributing methamphetamine in Evansville and nearby communities.

Prosecutors said many of the indicted were members or associates of the Grim Reapers, and one of the alleged ringleaders, 39-year-old Gary Wayne Forston, was the club's president.

The Grim Reapers compound was raided in November as a part of the investigation.
