Task Force Arrests Detroit Murder Suspect in Ohio

Middletown, OH - The U.S. Marshals’ Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested fugitive Timothy Terry on February 24, 2016 on an outstanding arrest warrant from Detroit, Michigan.

Terry, 43, was wanted by the Detroit Police Department on a charge of Murder. The warrant was assigned to a Detroit Police Detective on the U.S. Marshals’ Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team (DFAT). Terry allegedly shot a male victim, identified as Rehk Imhotep, outside a Home Depot in Detroit. Mr. Imhotep succumbed to his injuries and died. DFAT received information Terry was in the Middletown, Ohio area. The U.S. Marshals’ SOFAST unit in the Cincinnati Office was contacted and quickly located Terry in the 1100 Block of Garfield Street, Middletown, Ohio and arrested him on the outstanding Detroit charges.

Terry is currently in custody in the Butler County Sheriff's Office and will soon be extradited back to Detroit, Michigan.

Cincinnati’s SOFAST is a fugitive focused, U.S. Marshals Service-led task force consisting of local, state, and federal authorities including the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Butler County Sheriff’s Office, Colerain Township Police Department, Newtown Police Department and Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.

U.S. Marshals are the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization and capture more federal fugitives each year than all other law enforcement agencies combined.
