U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Suspect for Sexual Assaults of a Minor

Harrisburg, PA – United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced today that the United States Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Daniel Shaub, a 35-year old man, in Surfside Beach, South Carolina.

On March 23, 2013, the Northeastern Regional Police Department began investigating allegations that Shaub committed sexual offenses against a minor in York County, Pennsylvania. On December 18, an arrest warrant was issued by Magisterial District Judge Gerald Shoemaker, charging Shaub with the following offenses:

  • Statutory Sexual Assault
  • Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse - Person less than 16 years of age
  • Aggravated Indecent Assault
  • Indecent Assault - Person less than 16 years of age
  • Corruption of Minors
  • Photograph/Film/Depict on Computer - Sex Act–Child

On January 2, 2014 the Northeastern Regional Police Department requested assistance of the USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania to locate and apprehend Shaub.

Fugitive Task Force members developed information that Shaub fled from Pennsylvania to South Carolina. An investigative lead was sent to U.S. Marshals in Florence, South Carolina.

On January 3, Shaub was arrested without incident in Surfside Beach, South Carolina by USMS personnel. He was transported to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center in Horry County, and turned over to local authorities for processing pending further judicial proceedings.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service takes an aggressive, deliberate approach in locating and arresting fugitives charged with serious felony offenses, especially those wanted for sex crimes against children. It is my sincere hope that the victim will find some measure of comfort knowing that the alleged attacker has been brought to justice.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the Northeastern Regional Police Department. Assistance was provided by USMS personnel and task force members from the District of South Carolina.

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