BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A man who was recently on Brunswick's Most Wanted has been arrested.
Franklin Floyd of 1704 Colon Mintz Road in Leland was arrested Wednesday evening at his residence.
Floyd was featured on Brunswick's Most Wanted when he failed to show up for a court sentencing in January.
According to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, the Leland man had received a sentence of 70-84 months in prison for trafficking opiates, but the trial judge allowed Floyd time to get his affairs in order and to take care of his terminally ill wife.
Floyd ran after his wife died and had not been seen until the time of his arrest.
Floyd is currently being held in the Brunswick County Jail under no bond.
