FORT PAYNE — Agents with the DeKalb County Narcotics Unit recently collaborated with the Jackson County Narcotics and Interdiction Unit to apprehend a wanted fugitive.

Ethan Rogers, 32, of Fort Payne, had been on the run from law enforcement since they tried to arrest him on Oct. 19 in connection to some stolen property.

The DCSO received information that Rogers had been staying at a residence on County Road 127 in the Pisgah area with Harley Danielle Turner, 26, of Pisgah. 

Both Rogers and Turner were arrested at the residence with no further incident. Both were charged with third-degree burglary.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: “I would like to thank the public in their help in locating this subject.  Also, I would like to thank the DeKalb County Narcotics Unit and the Jackson County Narcotics Unit for your diligence and dedication in everything that you do.”
