The U.S. Marshals Service on Friday issued a $5,000 reward for “information leading to the direct arrest…” of a man wanted for allegedly brutally killing a Madison man in January.

According to a wanted poster issued by the Marshals Service, the agency is seeking information to aid in the capture of Adrian Darnyell Weston, 41. Weston is wanted on felony murder and aggravated assault charges in the shooting death of Alex “Moo Moo” Tolbert, 33, Madison. Tolbert, according to Det. Wes Thompson, Madison Police Department, was shot 14 times with a .22 caliber weapon in room 152 of the Budget Inn, Eatonton Road at approximately 8:45 p.m. on Jan. 23.

Weston was indicted by a Morgan County Grand Jury on March 1 for felony murder and aggravated assault. Weston has been at-large since the shooting while several agencies including the U.S. Marshal’s Service, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI), the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office and Madison Police Department have actively sought to detain the suspect.

“Law enforcement can’t do this alone. we need the assistance of the community,” said Chief Deputy Keith Howard, Morgan County Sheriff’s Office. “We definitely need them to assist us by making, at the very least, an anonymous tip. if they feel like they are frightened or afraid they need to anonymously help us find this offender.”

Along with the $5,000 reward offered by the Marshals Service, the Madison Police Department and Morgan County Sheriff’s Office are also offering a reward.

According to the wanted poster, persons with information regarding Weston’s location can contact the U.S. Marshals Tip Line at 1-877-WANTED-2 or www.usmarshals.gov/tips. All information will remain anonymous and confidential, the poster says.
