U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Luzerne County Robbery Suspect

Scranton, PA - Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that the United States Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Daysean Henderson – a 24-year old man in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

In July 2015, Pennsylvania State Police responded to a reported robbery with gunshots fired in Laurel Run Borough. On December 22, 2015, the Pennsylvania State Police obtained an arrest warrant charging Henderson with aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and other included offenses. Henderson is alleged to have robbed and shot at the victim in a parking lot. The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force adopted the case to assist in locating and apprehending Henderson.

Members of the Fugitive Task Force developed information that Henderson was residing in the Wilkes-Barre, PA area. Henderson was arrested today without incident after the USMS Task Force conducted a traffic stop in conjunction with the Wilkes-Barre Police Department.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service and our task force partners recognize the importance of cooperation between federal, state and local police agencies – especially when searching for fugitives wanted for using firearms to commit violent crimes. It is my sincere hope that the arrest of this violent fugitive brings some sense of relief to the community.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the Pennsylvania State Police, the Wilkes-Barre Police Department, and the Scranton Police Department.
