Police capture 'chicken catcher' gang member in robbery case

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Police say a known gang member from Texas was arrested after receiving a tip that he was in South Georgia.

Officers arrested 21-year-old Pablo Gonzalez on North College Avenue Friday afternoon.

Gonzalez was wanted for aggravated robbery in Alvin, Texas.

Investigators with Alvin Police told Douglas Police that he was in the area earlier this week.

They were able to track Gonzalez with information about his job. He is a chicken catcher.

Considered one of the dirtiest, hardest jobs in the poultry industry, a chicken catcher is a worker who catches birds in chicken houses and loads them onto trucks bound for processing plants, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Gonzalez will remain in Douglas Police custody and is expected to be extradited back to Texas.
