Scranton, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the
arrest of Miles Singleton – a 21-year old Moosic man.
24, 2019, the Scranton Police Department investigated a shooting in the
500 block of Kennedy Street.
As a result of that investigation
detectives obtained an arrest warrant charging Singleton with Aggravated
Assault, Firearms Not to Be Carried Without License and lesser included
offenses. Attempts to find Singleton were unsuccessful and the U. S.
Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him.
Today at about 8:30 a.m., the fugitive investigation led task
force members to a home in the 1000 block of Springbrook Avenue, Moosic
- where Singleton was taken into custody without incident. He was turned
over to the Scranton Police Department for arraignment and processing.
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The coordination and
cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case led to an
extremely dangerous and unpredictable fugitive being taken off the
streets. It is our top priority to arrest violent fugitives, especially
those who have no regard for human life.”
The USMS Fugitive Task
Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state,
county and local police agencies, including: the Pennsylvania State
Police; the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole; and the Scranton
Police Department - all of whom participated in this investigation.
