Fugitive in federal indictment sought

THOMASVILLE — A Thomas County man charged a year ago with trafficking cocaine is the subject of a manhunt in connection with a federal indictment.

Marion Simon was arrested Oct. 27, 2011, and released two weeks later on a $150,000 bond.

Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division agents have had several recent close encounters with the fugitive, but the suspect has managed to get away.

“I think he knows we’re looking for him,” Kevin Lee, Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division commander, said Thursday. “We’ve also contacted his attorney to let him know we’re looking for him.”

Simon, 46, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts: possession with intent to distribute cocaine base and possession with intent to distribute cocaine.

Local narcotics agents presented evidence to grand jurors in Macon that resulted in the two-count indictment.
