Probation violator arrested in Long County
Placeholder Image

A Savannah man wanted for a federal probation violation was arrested Thursday in Long County by U.S. Marshals, the Long County Sheriff’s Office and the Georgia Department of Corrections K-9 unit.
Wesley Mark Miller, 32, was convicted in 2003 for conspiracy to manufacture, possession with intent to distribute and distribution of methamphetamine. He was given a 120-month sentence to be followed by five years of supervised release. His supervised release previously was revoked in April 2012. His current supervised release term began in September 2012. The current violation warrant stemmed from an incident that happened in Effingham County on July 13, when deputies conducted a traffic stop, but Miller sped off as one law-enforcement officer approached his window.
A chase ensued and Miller lost control of his vehicle and crashed into several utilities poles. He was treated at Memorial Health University Medical Center for multiple injuries. At some time during his medical treatment, Miller left the hospital and had been on the run ever since.   
The federal warrant was issued Aug. 8, and authorities conducted an extensive investigation to find Miller.
A lead surfaced that led authorities to a trailer off Marcus Noble Road in Long County. Marshals Task Force members, Long County Sheriff’s Office members and the Georgia Department of Corrections K-9 unit arrested Miller without incident at the residence. He was transported to the Liberty County Jail to await court proceedings.
