Earlier this month, the Harrisburg Bureau of
Police requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task
Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania to locate and arrest Pierce.
The Task Force developed information that Pierce had fled Pennsylvania,
possibly to the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. An investigative lead was sent
to U.S. Marshals based in New Mexico.
On December 18, U.S. Marshals captured Pierce on Montgomery Boulevard in
Albuquerque. The fugitive was taken into custody without incident. Pierce
was turned over to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department for processing
and preliminary judicial proceedings.
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The Task Force places a high
priority on arresting violent offenders, especially those who have no regard
for human life. This arrest ensured that an extremely dangerous and
unpredictable attempted homicide fugitive was taken off the streets.”
The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the
Harrisburg Bureau of Police. Additional assistance was obtained from
Marshals Service personnel in the District of New Mexico and the Bernalillo
County Sheriff’s Department.
The concept of all USMS-led fugitive task
forces is to seek out and arrest the nation’s most dangerous offenders.
