Damon Katz: This is a tangible demonstration about the FBI’s resolve. No matter how long it takes, we’re going to find the fugitives that we look for.
Halpern: I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau and you’re listening to “FBI, This Week”. Agents cuffed the couple just days after the Bureau launched a publicity campaign which included a 30-second public service announcement.

Agents arrested Greig inside the apartment where evidence was found. Special Agent Scott Garriola was there…
Scott Garriola: …long guns, hand guns semi-automatic weapons. We found a large sum of cash hidden in the walls.
