ATLANTA -- Troy Hardy is 11Alive's Fugitive of the Week for October 10, 2012. Hardy is wanted by the U.S. Marshals Counter Gang Unit and the Fulton County Sheriff's Office for a probation violation.

The probation violation stems from an arrest and conviction in a 2008 carjacking case in Atlanta. "He and three other males robbed a victim at gunpoint and stole his Mercedes on McDaniel Street," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Eric Heinze.

Heinze said Hardy led police on a chase in the stolen vehicle the next day. "Hardy led police on a brief chase, which ended when Hardy crashed the stolen vehicle at the Capitol Vanira Apartments located on Hank Aaron Drive," he said.

Heinze said Hardy ran but was apprehended by Atlanta Police after a brief foot chase.

Hardy is a member of the Atlanta Blood Gang (ABG) and has a lengthy criminal history of burglaries and possession of stolen goods, according to the U.S. Marshals.
