HUNTINGTON -- A fugitive wanted in connection with weapons and drugs charges in Florida was arrested Thursday in Huntington.

Germondi Desean Harden, 26, was arrested at a home in the 200 block of Marcum Terrace by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive C.U.F.F.E.D. Task Force early Thursday morning, according to Sgt. Dale Enochs with the Cabell County Sheriff's Department. The arrest came after a tip out of Florida.

Harden, who has been on the run since February 2012, is wanted in Seminole County, Fla., on charges of failure to appear for drug trafficking more than 28 grams of cocaine, conspiracy and carrying a concealed deadly weapon. He is being held without bond at Western Regional Jail in Barboursville, awaiting extradition to Florida.

Law enforcement officers from the Cabell, Wayne and Lincoln County Sheriffs' Departments, as well as the U.S. Marshals Service, assisted in the arrest.

The C.U.F.F.E.D. Task Force also arrested William Douglas Young, 41, at a residence in Louisville Wednesday evening. Young is a suspect in the Feb. 1 robbery of BB&T's Patrick Street Plaza branch bank in Charleston. Young has been charged with one count of armed robbery and is being held in a Jefferson County, Ky., jail, awaiting extradition to Kanawha County.
