U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Fugitive Brothers in New York
Marquis Clark and Elijah Clark-Bream both wanted for illegal firearm possession

Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Marquis Clark – a 20-year old York man – and Elijah Clark-Bream – a 24-year old Hanover man.

On July 13, 2018, the York County Court of Common Please issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Marquis Clark for failing to appear in court to answer to the charges of Possession with Intent to Distribute (a controlled substance); Possession of Firearm Prohibited; Firearms not to be Carried without License, and Receiving Stolen Property.

On July 31, 2018, the Conewago Township Police Department in Adams County obtained an arrest warrant charging Elijah Clark-Bream with Aggravated Assault; Possession of Firearms Prohibited; Firearms Not to Be Carried without a License; Terroristic Threats; and lesser included offenses.

Attempts to find Marquis and Elijah in and around York and Hanover were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend them. Deputy Marshals investigated and learned that the two men were brothers and fled together to the Bronx, NY.

Today at approximately 10:45 a.m., members of the U. S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force arrested Elijah Clark-Bream near the intersection of Lyman and East 169th Streets in the Bronx. About 15 minutes later, Marquis Clark was arrested in the 1300 block of Lyman Street. They were turned over to the New York Police Department pending extradition to Pennsylvania.

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 to prevent convicted felons from possessing firearms. It is my sincere hope that the arrest of these fugitives bring some sense of relief to the community.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state, county and local police agencies; including the Harrisburg Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Spring Garden Township Police Department, the Swatara Township Police Department, the York City Police Department, the York County District Attorney’s Office and the York County Sheriff’s Office – all of whom participated in this investigation.
