U.S. Marshals Arrest York Murder Suspect in Rochester, NY

Harrisburg, PA – United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that yesterday the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) arrested Richard Larry Nolden Jr., a 21-year old man originally from York, PA.

Nolden was sought by the York City Police Department for a homicide that occurred on the afternoon of Monday, January 23, 2012 on North Queen Street, near East Philadelphia Street.

The USMS adopted the fugitive case immediately and Deputy U.S. Marshals began their search for Nolden. Yesterday, those Deputies learned that he was staying in Rochester, New York. This information was forwarded to the USMS - Western District of New York. At about 5:45 PM, Deputy U.S. Marshals arrested Nolden in the 100 block of Scrantom Street in Rochester. Nolden was turned over to local authorities pending extradition to Pennsylvania.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “Historically, Marshals tracked the most dangerous fugitive wherever they fled. Today’s arrest demonstrated a modern day commitment to that same mission and our communities are safer for it.”

U.S. Marshals were assisted by several agencies that comprise its Middle District of Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force. This included officers from the York City Police Department and the Pennsylvania State Police.

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