ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Authorities with the U.S. Marshals Western Michigan Fugitive Task Force say they’ve located and arrested a suspect recently featured on West Michigan’s Most Wanted.

Michael Lynn Hampton, 67, was taken into custody by members of the U.S. Marshals Task Force in Columbus after he was located in Zanesville.  He’s scheduled to appear in court there Thursday, awaiting extradition to Michigan for charges he’s facing here.

Hampton was first featured on West Michigan’s Most Wanted in early April.  He was wanted in Michigan for violating the sex offender registry act, maintaining a methamphetamine lab and for felony weapons violations.  He’d avoided arrest on some of those open warrants for a year.
