U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Long Island Murder Fugitive
New York suspect captured in Monroe County

Scranton, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that the U.S. Marshals arrested Torey Warren, a 34-year old man, in Pocono Pines, Pennsylvania.

Warren was being sought for a murder that occurred in late September 2013. It is alleged that Warren fatally shot his victim in the back after being involved in an altercation. An arrest warrant was issued on October 11, 2013 by Judge Mark D. Cohen in Suffolk County, New York. Warren was charged with the following offense:

  • One (1) count of Murder in the Second Degree

This fugitive case was adopted by the USMS New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force. An investigative lead was received by the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania, with information that Warren may have fled to Monroe County.

On October 24, U.S. Marshals and district task force personnel, assisted by officers from the USMS NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force, Suffolk County (NY) Police Department and the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department, located and arrested Warren at a home on Old Route 940 in Pocono Pines in Monroe County. The fugitive was taken into custody without incident.

Warren was arraigned in Monroe County as a fugitive-from-justice. He waived extradition to New York, and will be returned to Suffolk County, New York for further court proceedings.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The coordination and cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case ensured that an extremely dangerous and unpredictable murder fugitive was taken off the streets. It is our top priority to arrest violent offenders, especially those who have no regard for human life.”

U.S. Marshals received significant assistance from the Pennsylvania Board of Probation & Parole, Scranton Police Department and the Lackawanna County Sheriff’s Office. These agencies are participating members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Additional assistance was provided by the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department.

The concept of all USMS-led fugitive task forces is to seek out and arrest the nation’s most dangerous offenders.
