Suspect featured in 'Fugitive Focus' arrested on drug charge

FARGO - A 26-year-old Fargo man wanted by federal authorities was arrested today after being featured as The Forum's "Fugitive Focus."

The U.S. Marshals Service said tips and information provided by Forum readers led to the arrest of Phong Nguyen Le in Minot.

Le is wanted in U.S. District Court on a felony charge of participating in a marijuana-selling conspiracy.

Court records for the warrant are unavailable because cases in federal court are not made public until after charges are filed.

Phong Nguyen Le has a lengthy criminal history of charges in Cass County and Fargo Municipal Court.

In 2008, Le was found guilty of possessing marijuana with the intent to deliver, a B felony. Later that year, he was also found guilty of ingesting a controlled substance, a misdemeanor offense.

Since 2007, Le has pleaded guilty to several traffic violations, including reckless driving and a separate incident of exhibition driving.
