Harrisburg, PA – U.S. Marshal Michael R.
Regan announced today that the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) arrested
Jonathan Luis Torres-Caraballo in Millville, New Jersey.
Torres-Caraballo was being sought by the West Manchester Township Police
Department (York County). In early May 2010, a 16-year old girl from West
Manchester Township was reported as a runaway by her parents. An
investigation determined the juvenile female may be with a 20-year old male,
later identified as Jonathan Torres-Caraballo. Further investigation
determined that the minor was being held against her will.
On May 7, the West Manchester Police Department obtained an arrest warrant
against Torres-Caraballo, charging him with:
- 1 count of Interference with the Custody
of a Child - felony
- 1 count of Concealment of the
Whereabouts of a Child – felony
This fugitive case was adopted by the
U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of
Pennsylvania. U.S. Marshals developed investigative leads in New Jersey,
which were provided to the USMS New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive
Task Force (NY/NJ RFTF).
On May 12 while conducting surveillance, U.S. Marshals spotted Torres-Caraballo
outside of a residence in Millville, New Jersey. At approximately
3:00PM, the USMS NY/NJ RFTF made entry into the residence, where Torres-Caraballo
was arrested. The missing girl was recovered at the scene.
Torres-Caraballo was turned over to New Jersey authorities for
processing on the outstanding Pennsylvania charges. The girl was taken
to a local New Jersey State Police barracks, where she will await the
arrival of her parents from York County.
