The fourth fugitive, Venny Lonnie Green remains wanted, according to U.S. Marshals.

The four men were wanted on outstanding warrants after they failed to register as a sex offender with the Virginia State Police.

All four are longtime Hampton Roads residents. The three who are now in custody were also wanted in Virginia Beach for violating probation.

The U.S. Marshals asked for the public’s help in finding these men on Aug. 28 and has offered a $500 reward for information. They received multiple tips that ultimately led to some of the arrests.
