Kyle Catterton, a Virginia State University offensive tackle, was named to a all-conference football team in the fall.

Now he's a Washington Examiner "Most Wanted" fugitive.

The 21-year-old senior from Waldorf disappeared in January as law enforcement officials raided his home in Colonial Heights, Va., just south of Richmond.

Police arrested two co-defendants and recovered more than 10 pounds of marijuana with a street value of about $12,000, as well as more than $5,000 in cash.

They also found three handguns, a shotgun and an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle with a 100-round drum-style magazine.

But they didn't find Catterton. He's wanted on charges of possession of with intent to distribute marijuana, and multiple counts of possession of firearms.

U.S. Marshals are asking the public for information about his whereabouts.

"Catterton has no criminal history and no history of violence that we are aware of, but he seems to be starting out his criminal behavior in a big way," said Matt Burke, supervisory inspector for the Capital Area Region Fugitive Task Force. "We need him in custody to answer these charges and to prevent him from committing more serious offenses and getting himself or someone else hurt."

Catterton, who attended North Point High School in Waldorf, still has ties to the area, the District of Columbia and Virginia State.

Catterton is listed as 6-feet-2 and 220 pounds. Catterton was Virginia State's lone representative on the 2012 all-Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association team, taking second-team honors. He is no longer enrolled at the university.

Anyone with information can call marshals deputies at 301-489-1717.

Since 2008, The Examiner's "Most Wanted" feature has led directly to the capture or surrender of 52 fugitives, including convicted killers, armed robbers, kidnappers, sex offenders and drug dealers.
