U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests York Robbery Suspect in Harrisburg
 
Harrisburg, PA - United States Marshal Martin Pane announced today that the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Taijeem Gibson, 24, in Harrisburg, PA.

On June 16, 2016, the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force and other law enforcement agencies arrested Gibson in the 900 block of Eisenhower Blvd in Harrisburg, PA without incident. Gibson was wanted by the York City Police Department for burglary, aggravated assault, robbery and possession of firearm prohibited. Another warrant was issued by Pennsylvania Parole for violations of his parole where his original offense was weapon possession. It is alleged that Gibson forced entry into a residence in York, pistol whipped and robbed the victim before fleeing the scene.

United States Marshal Martin Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to locate and apprehend those who are wanted for serious crimes. Our communities will not be a safe haven.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the York City Police Department, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, York County Sheriff’s Office, York County District Attorney Office, Harrisburg Bureau of Police and the Swatara Township Police Department.
