A Bibb County man is charged with concealing a federal fugitive after a suspected meth dealer was found hiding behind a false wall in his trailer, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Macon Tuesday.
The complaint charges Chad Cummins with one count of concealing a person from arrest.
According to the complaint, he's accused of hiding Milton Dobbin Evans, who was indicted by a federal grand jury last month.
Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher Wright wrote that sources told him Evans was living at a trailer park on Highway 247, Hawkinsville Road, in south Bibb.
He visited the park in May and talked to Cummins, who said he hadn't seen the suspect in weeks.
When marshals visited the trailer again on Monday, Cummins again said that Evans wasn't there.
Officers saw a woman in the trailer.
Cummins said it was his girlfriend, but marshals recognized her as Evans' girlfriend.
She was arrested, and officers searched the trailer.
They found Evans hidden behind the false wall in a closet, according to Wright's statement.
A federal grand jury last month indicted Evans and 12 other people on meth-distribution charges in Central Georgia.
