Williamsport, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Abdul Bailey, a 28-year old man formerly of
Atlantic City, New Jersey.
On Saturday, May 4, 2013, the Atlantic
City Police Department investigated the fatal shooting of a man in the
500 block of North Indiana Avenue. On September 16, 2020, detectives
obtained an arrest warrant charging Bailey with that homicide. Attempts
to find Bailey in Atlantic City were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals
Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him.
Today, at about 12:30 p.m., members of the task force arrested Bailey
without incident at a home in the 600 block of Elmira Street,
Williamsport. He was turned over to Lycoming county officials to await
extradition to New Jersey.
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
stated, “Crimes of violence are of the highest priority for the Fugitive
Task Force. The Marshals Service and our partners recognize the
importance of bringing those charged with such crimes to justice. It is
my sincere hope that the arrest of this fugitive brings some sense of
closure to the family.”
The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the
Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 22 state, county and
local police agencies, including: the Williamsport Bureau of Police; the
Lycoming County Probation Office; the Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office;
the Pennsylvania State Police; and, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation
and Parole – all of whom participated in this investigation.
