Kingpin Added to U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted List
is a reason fugitive
Warner, 31, has the nickname of “Super Dave.” It represented the
seemingly unlimited quantities of cocaine and marijuana he was able
to provide to the streets via his extensive drug organization. Since
Warner’s indictment in June 2004, twenty-five members of his drug
gang have been arrested, but the kingpin himself went on the run.
Warner lived a life of endless
luxury. He enjoyed expensive homes, race cars and motorcycles,
custom jewelry, a string of Tennessee walking horses, and attending
every significant sporting event in high style. But this lavish
lifestyle was funded by an operation that distributed more than
8,000 kilograms of marijuana and more than 500 kilograms of cocaine.
Demanding he answer for his crimes, the Drug Enforcement
Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms &
Explosives indicted Warner for ‘conspiracy to possess with intent to
distribute cocaine and marijuana and criminal forfeiture.’
Along with the drug conspiracy, there
have been allegations of witness intimidation and official
corruption which have elevated the degree of danger concerning
Warner’s criminal activities.
“David Warner has evaded arrest since
2004. Consequently, the U.S. Marshals have made his capture one of
our top priorities,” said U.S. Marshal Nehemiah Flowers, Jr. of the
Southern District of Mississippi.
Warner is a black male, 31 years old,
6 feet tall, 240 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
There is a reward for information leading to the arrest of Warner,
and all inquiries remain confidential. Anyone with information is
encouraged to contact their nearest U.S. Marshals Service office, or
call the Marshals’ 24 hour phone line at 1-800-336-0102.
U.S. Marshals are the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization
and capture more federal fugitives each year than all other national
law enforcement agencies combined. Four of the individuals on their
15 MOST WANTED list have been apprehended in recent months.
