U.S. Marshals Arrest Lower Paxton Township Armed Robbery Suspects

Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrests of Gregory Lownes – a 26-year old man – and Stefanie Kabonic – a 24-year old woman; both of Lower Paxton Township.

On February 1, 2016, the Lower Paxton Township Police Department (LPTPD) responded to a report of gunshots fired at a home in the 1000 block of Acri Road. Officers discovered that a man suffered a gunshot wound but refused to cooperate with the investigation. Despite this, detectives learned that Lownes and Kabonic allegedly lured the man to their home with the intent of robbing the man. As a result, (LPTPD) obtained arrest warrants charging Lownes with Criminal Attempt – Homicide and Robbery, and, Kabonic with Robbery. Attempts to locate the two at their home were unsuccessful and the LPTPD requested assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force.

This morning at approximately 11 a.m., members of the USMS Fugitive Task Force arrested both Lownes and Kabonic at the Motel 6 on Arsenal Boulevard in York, PA. Kabonic was arrested without incident. Lownes attempted to hide under a bed. Both were transported to Dauphin County.

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 personnel from the Lower Paxton Township Police Department, the Northern York County Regional Police Department, the York City Police Department, the Pennsylvania State Police, the York County Sheriff’s Office, the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, and the Dauphin County Probation and Parole.
