a coincidence that these fugitives were all arrested in this short time
frame. The U.S. Marshals Service, working alongside their fellow law
enforcement officers, diligently and relentlessly investigate until they
capture their man or woman and bring them to justice. These arrests are
merely a result of that ongoing effort and our collective commitment to
making the community a safer place.” stated Don O’Keefe, U.S. Marshal
for the Northern District of California.
