Anthony Kuchta is wanted by the US Marshals and the DEA for drug trafficking charges that could net him a life sentence in prison. He was aired on AMW four times between 1993-2004.
Kuchta grew up in a wealthy family that lived in Michigan. In order to fund his luxury lifestyle, Kuchta got involved in cocaine trafficking. In 1990, Kuchta was arrested along with two other people during a sting operation. However in December of that year, Kuchta posted bail and fled, he is wanted for conspiring to deliver over 650 grams of cocaine. He is listed as a Class 1 drug trafficker, the highest designation given by the DEA.
Thoughts? I think the consensus by law enforcement is that he fled to Central or South America and is still living an affluent lifestyle while continuing to do business with Latin American drug cartels. The old amw.com pages mention he was very close to his son so it would be very interesting to see if he kept in contact with him over the years.
