U.S. Marshals Arrest Abuser of the Elderly

Albuquerque, NM – On January 23, 2012, United States Marshals arrested Penelope Wronski, 54, for failing to appear in court on charges of Abuse and Neglect Resulting in Death. The charge stems from a June 2010 incident where Wronski failed to care for her elderly mother resulting in her mother’s death. Wronski was arrested in the 11000 block on Montgomery NE and booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center.

Annually, investigations carried out by the U.S. Marshals result in the apprehension of approximately 34,000 federal fugitives. More federal fugitives are arrested by Marshals than all other federal agencies combined. The task force objective is to seek out and arrest all Violent Offenders. Last year, U.S. Marshals task forces across the country arrested more than 27,000 state and local fugitives on felony charges.
