DETROIT (WWJ) - Two dangerous fugitives from Detroit have been arrested following a months-long multi-state search.

The Greenbrier County Sheriff’s Office says Reondo "Jose" Ventour, 22, and Dekarie "Jesus" Kennedy, 23, were arrested Tuesday during the execution of a search warrant at a home in Rupert, West Virginia.

During the search, police found multiple handguns, a loaded tactical shotgun, methamphetamine, heroin, marijuana, digital scales and approximately $3,000. Two West Virginia residents were also arrested at the scene. 

Ventour and Kennedy were taken into custody and charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin and fugitive from justice. Both are being held in the Southern Regional Jail in lieu of $100,000 bonds.

Ventour was wanted on a first-degree murder charge for allegedly planning the July 25 murder of Darryl Hicks, who was ambushed outside of a gas station on Gratiot near State Fair. Kennedy, who is suspected of fatally shooting Hicks, was also wanted on a felony drug offense. A third suspect, 19-year-old Kayjuan Glover-Smith, is already in police custody.

Ventour and Kennedy are both awaiting extradition back to Michigan.
