|U.S. Marshals Arrest Bucks County Armed Robbery Fugitive|
Philadelphia, PA – Members of the Eastern Pennsylvania U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force arrested Troy Elliot Keys, 19, for armed robbery and related charges, at approximately 9:15 a.m. in an apartment complex located in the 2000 block of Veterans Highway, Levittown Pennsylvania. Keys was wanted for armed robbery since early August. It is alleged that on August 2nd, Keys brandished a firearm and robbed an 18-year-old male of a large amount of U.S. currency in the 5300 block of Foster Avenue in Bristol Township. A warrant was issued by the Bristol Township Police Department on August 6th.
On Thursday, October 15th, the U.S. Marshals Task Force received information suggesting Keys was currently hiding in an apartment complex in Levittown. Investigation determined Keys had a female associate at the complex and at 8:00am this morning, members of the task force decided to attempt warrant service. At approximately 9:15am, U.S. Marshals, Bucks County Sherriff’s, Bucks County Detectives, Bristol Township Police and Middletown Police, surrounded an apartment where investigators believed Keys to be inside. As Marshals knocked and announced, Keys jumped out a window and was quickly apprehended by Bucks County Sheriff’s Deputies. Keys was then transported to the Bristol Township Police Department for processing. Keys is currently being housed at the Bucks County Prison.
Eric Gartner, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania, said, “We always appreciate the opportunity to
support Chief Coulton and the Bristol Township Police Department in
apprehending dangerous fugitives. The extraordinary teamwork and
professionalism of our Fugitive Task Force along with Bucks County
Sheriff Milton Warrell and his BCSO Deputies, the Bristol Township
Police Department, Middletown Police Department, and Bucks County
Detectives, resulted in the quick and safe apprehension of Troy Keys.
The joint law enforcement cooperation speaks to the devoted relationship
between our agencies and tremendously benefits the public we serve.”
