United States Marshals along the Gulf Coast captured a man in South Alabama who is wanted in Gwinnett County for allegedly shooting his victim execution-style.
Agents captured Norman Lee Griffin, 36, at a gas station in Daphne, AL, on Friday. Griffin had outstanding warrants in connection with the June 2012 murder of Ulice Perrell Leatherberry in Norcross.
U.S. Marshals in Atlanta concluded that Griffin had ties to Pensacola, FL, and possibly living nearby in Lillian, AL. Around 8:30 Friday morning, agents pinned down Griffin as he was seen dropping someone off to work.
Authorities initiated a car stop a little later. Griffin gave up and was arrested without incident.
Agents connected Griffin to the Gulf Coast area because he had a previous arrest in Pensacola, FL, back in 2009. During that bust, authorities seized crack and powder cocaine as well as drug paraphernalia and a 2007 Dodge charger he was driving.
Griffin is being held in the Baldwin County jail in Bay Minette, AL, as fugitive from justice.
