Feds on lookout for three men wanted on drug charges

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - The U.S. Marshals Service released photographs Wednesday of three fugitives wanted for drug charges, hoping someone can provide clues to the men's whereabouts.

The men are three of 13 people indicted by a federal grand jury two weeks ago.

Still sought by police are Clyde Everett Brown Jr., 29, Paul Lee Jackson, 33, and Julian Demont Pace, 27. All three were indicted on allegations that they distributed crack cocaine and conspired to deliver more than 50 grams of crack cocaine.

Senior Deputy Jeff Stine, with the U.S. Marshals Service, said Brown may be in the Hagerstown area. Stine could not speculate on the whereabouts of the others, but said people in the area probably know where they are.

The indictments came on July 9 after a three-year investigation into drug trafficking in the Centre Street area in Martinsburg. The other 10 persons indicted are in custody. One man was caught Tuesday, Stine said.


The photos were either booking shots or ones provided to police by individuals who knew the men, Stine said.

Finding them is important, he said.

"There's a presumption that they're a danger to the community and we need to bring them before the court," Stine said.

Anyone with information can call the anonymous Berkeley County Crime Solvers line at 304-267-4999, or the Marshals office at 304-267-7179.

A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the apprehension of the men.
