MONTGOMERY, AL (WTVM) -  The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force has captured an escaped federal prisoner following a massive multi-state manhunt.

Russell Montague was captured Tuesday afternoon in Gulfport, Mississippi.

Montague was in prison at Maxwell Air Force Base for a 180 month sentenced for a violation of federal firearms act and drug control act.

Authorities say he was trafficking narcotics while using a stolen machine gun.

Montague, we're told, has been serving time in prison in Montgomery since 2008.

Now he will be brought back to Montgomery to face charges.
