Investigators say Jason McClure sold methalone and may have been targeting local college students. The drug is a precursor to ecstasy and causes users to feel a sense of euphoria.

"They may also develop a type of psychosis, you're going to get hallucinations, deep personalization anything such as like you would see with meth," says Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla.

Austin police officers arrested McClure in May of 2012 during a drug transaction near the University of Texas campus.

"During this incident, this individual made a transaction that consisted of one pound of methalone where he also received $5,000 in cash for that transaction," says Filla.

Investigators found more drugs in his home, including cocaine and heroin.

He plead guilty to conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute methalone

"He was set to appear before the judge for sentencing in September 2012, during this hearing, he didn't show up and a warrant was issued for his arrest," says Filla.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Filla says he could be anywhere and has ties to several states including Arizona, Florida and Pennsylvania.

Filla says, "Somebody knows where he is at out here in the Austin area."

Jason McClure is 6 feet tall, 190 lbs., and has brown eyes and brown hair.

He may have changed his hair and grown facial hair.

Investigators say he may also be using an alias.
