Authorities say they’ve arrested the last of 17 suspects in the alleged Grim Reapers drug ring. 

In a release, the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office said deputies and federal marshals arrested Jesse Wilson in the 3200 block of Kleitz Road on Sunday.

He was wanted on a warrant for conspiracy to deal methamphetamine.

The sheriff’s office said the 34-year-old Wilson tried to flee, but was caught by a sheriff’s K-9 in a wooded area.

Authorities arrested more than a dozen suspects last week in the motorcycle club’s alleged drug trafficking operation.

Police said an investigation uncovered and confiscated nearly thirty pounds of methamphetamine, 23 firearms, and $35,000 in cash.

U-S Attorney Josh Minkler called the arrests “good news” and a “big win” for the community.
