by Staff Reports

A fugitive from Stamford, Connecticut, has been arrested in Colbert County and is currently awaiting extradition. Authorities say 28 year old Jerry Martin Cottongin Jr. was arrested in Stamford 18 months ago and charged with selling weapons stolen from Birmingham, Alabama.

After his initial court appearance, Cottongin apparently fled back to his native Decatur, Alabama. Last week he was apprehended in Colbert County and is awaiting pickup by Stamford authorities.
