Known Mississippi gang member wanted by FBI captured

CORINTH, Miss. — The Federal Bureau of Investigation canceled an alert for a wanted man out of Corinth, Mississippi.

On Wednesday, authorities asked the public to keep an eye out for Kennoris Hughey, a known member of the Gangster Disciples. They said he was wanted on a drug distribution conspiracy charge after reportedly being involved in a drug ring in north Mississippi since 2017.

The 37-year-old should be considered armed and dangerous, the FBI warned.

Several hours later, the FBI released another statement saying Hughey had been captured. They did not release any additional information.
