U.S. Marshals Arrest Suspect Wanted in Aggravated Robbery
Dayton, OH - U.S. Marshal Pete Tobin is pleased to announce that during the early hours of July 26, 2018 the U.S. Marshal’s Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) tracked down and located Darrell L. Boyd Jr., age 20. Boyd was wanted by the Dayton Police Department for Aggravated (Armed) Robbery. The charges stem from an incident that occurred in July of 2018 in the 1400 block of Canfield Avenue in Dayton.

On July 14, 2018, Dayton Police were called out to an address on Canfield Avenue in Dayton where a carjacking was reported. Initial reports indicated Boyd and a female accomplice had lured the driver of a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu to their awaiting vehicle upon parking at his residence. Boyd proceeded to hold the driver at gun point and demanded the keys to his vehicle. Upon receipt of the vehicle keys, Boyd entered the 2010 Malibu and followed the female accomplice away from the scene. Boyd led police on a multi-jurisdictional pursuit; in which he drove over curbs, between apartment buildings and through various patches of grass. Boyd ultimately crashed the vehicle on the 900 block of Upland Avenue in Dayton. Boyd further led officers on a foot chase; which resulted in his successful evasion of law enforcement.

On early July 26, 2018, SOFAST officers, through several days of development, were able to determine Boyd was staying in an apartment off of Daytona Parkway in Dayton, OH. Dayton SOFAST quickly surrounded the apartment building and made entry into the apartment. Boyd was safely apprehended without incident and brought before the court on his charges.

U.S. Marshals SOFAST is a multi-jurisdictional task force comprised of the Dayton Police Department, Springfield Police Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office, Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio Adult Parole Authority, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, and Springboro Police Department.

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