U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Murder Suspect From Detroit
Cincinnati, OH – In early morning hours of 3/19/2010, the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested 30 year-old Kenneth Kendrick at an associate’s residence located on Bahama Terrace in Cincinnati, Ohio. Kendrick is accused of an execution style shooting and killing of Anthony Collins at 8500 Prest Street in Detroit, Michigan on November 28, 2009. Kendrick is a four time habitual offender with a lengthy criminal record that includes multiple convictions for various crimes including felony weapon violations. Acting U.S. Marshal Cathy Jones stated, “Due to the limited resources within the local law enforcement community it is imperative that Federal Law Enforcement join forces with local agencies to protect our community. This arrest highlights the impact we can make when information between agencies is shared and relayed on a timely basis.”

On 03/18/2010, SOFAST received information from the U.S. Marshals in Detroit that Kendrick was staying with a girlfriend on Bahama Terrace. Task Force Officers entered the house and called for Kendrick to come downstairs and surrender. Kendrick complied with the officers orders and was arrested without incident. Kendrick was booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center where he will wait for extradition to Detroit.

SOFAST is a multi-jurisdictional task force comprised of the U.S. Marshals, Cincinnati Police Department, Butler County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio Adult Parole Authority, U.S. Department of Agriculture OIG, Warren County Prosecutors Office and U.S. Attorney’s Office.

U.S. Marshals are the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization and capture more federal fugitives each year than all other law enforcement agencies combined. For more information, go to
