Richmond Fugitive Captured by U.S. Marshals

Alexandria, VA – U.S. Marshal Bobby Mathieson announces the capture of Shane Daggs. Daggs was wanted by Richmond Police Department for multiple armed robbery warrants.

At approximately 11:39 p.m. on Jan. 30, Daggs and two other suspects allegedly approached two individuals on the 1100 block of West Marshall Street, near Virginia Commonwealth University. One of the suspects produced a handgun and ordered the two victims to get on the ground. The other two suspects subsequently shoved the victims to the ground. The three subjects then robbed them of their belongings. Daggs allegedly fled the area in order to elude police, while the two other suspects were arrested by Richmond Police.

The U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), along with Newport News Police Department and Hampton Police Department, determined that Daggs was frequenting the 1500 block of Briarfield Road in Hampton. Surveillance teams identified Daggs and arrested him without incident yesterday. Daggs was transported to a local jail and awaits extradition to Richmond.
