On Thursday afternoon, FBI and law enforcement officials arrested Vernon fugitives Trevor Scott and Javaris Scott in Wichita Falls.

FBI officials say they were both arrested without incident after police received a tip.

The arrests happened in the 1700 block of Pearlie Drive around 2 p.m.

Both men have been fugitives from justice since July 12.

In August, the FBI offered a $5,000 reward for tips leading to the arrest of two brothers wanted on drug-related charges.

The search for the Scott brothers came after federal authorities arrested over 30 people in two separate drug trafficking networks, operating in Texoma.
