U.S. Marshals Catch One of Durham's Most Wanted

Durham, NC – This afternoon, Terrance J. Butler, a 21 year old, Black Male, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force (JFTF) and the Durham Police Department. A true bill of indictment was returned and a warrant was issued for Butler for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, felony possession schedule VI controlled substance, possession with intent to manufacture sell and deliver a schedule VI controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Butler is also associated with the Bloods gang in the Durham area.

This indictment stemmed from an incident that occurred on January 21, 2013, when Durham Police Officers responded to a call regarding a subject with a gunshot wound at the 1000 block of Drew Street. The wounded subject was transported to Duke Hospital for medical treatment and allegedly received severe bodily damage. The condition of the wounded subject is unknown at this time.

Through extensive surveillance and interviews, members of the JFTF conducted a knock and talk at the residence and located Butler in the apartment. Butler was taken into custody at the Featherstone Village Apartments at 4916 Old Page Road without incident. Butler was transported to the Durham County Jail.

The U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force for the Middle District of North Carolina is comprised of investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, Chapel Hill Police Department, Durham Police Department, Greensboro Police Department, High Point Police Department, Winston Salem Police Department, Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety Probation and Parole Division and the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
