Task Force Arrests Cincinnati Robbery Suspect in Californi
Pasadena, California - U.S. Marshal Pete Tobin is pleased to announce that during the afternoon hours of August 8, 2017, the U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force (PSWRFTF) arrested fugitive Shakeem MILNER on an outstanding warrant from the Hamilton County Common Pleas Court, Cincinnati, Ohio for the charges of Felonious Assault, Aggravated Robbery, and Robbery.

On July 11, 2017, MILNER was indicted by a Hamilton County Grand Jury. MILNER allegedly assaulted an adult male in the Village of North College Hill with a firearm on July 3, 2017. The North College Hill Police Department investigated the case involving MILNER; this warrant was assigned to the U.S. Marshals Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) on July 13, 2017. SOFAST developed information that led them to believe MILNER was hiding in Pasadena, CA. SOFAST Investigators contacted U.S. Marshals in CA to assist with arresting MILNER. The U.S. Marshals (PSWRFTF) quickly located MILNER in the 1900 Block of North Los Robles Ave, in Pasadena, CA and arrested him without incident.

TMILNER is currently in custody at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office in CA awaiting extradition back to Cincinnati, Ohio. MILNER could face new charges from the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas.

Cincinnati’s SOFAST is a fugitive focused, U.S. Marshals Service-led task force consisting of local, state, and federal authorities including the Adult Parole Authority, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Butler County Probation Office, Colerain Township Police Department, Department of Homeland Security/ Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Harrison Police Department, Social Security Administration Office of the Inspecstor General, St. Bernard Police and Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.
