U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Fugitive Wanted for Child Endangerment After Baby Found With Suspected Packets of Heroin and Fentanyl in its Mouth

Harrisburgh, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Tyler Darnell Norman, a 26-year-old Harrisburg man.

On September 23, 2021, at about 3:15 p.m., Harrisburg police officers were dispatched to 2nd and Market Streets for an unresponsive 7-month-old child. An officer attempted rescue breathing and discovered a pink packet in the child’s mouth – a type of packet frequently used in illegal drug sales. The child’s mother was present and confirmed that the packet contained a heroin and fentanyl mix. Officers administered two doses of an opioid overdose reversal drug while transporting the baby to UPMC Harrisburg. Medical personnel continued treatment and the child survived.

The child’s mother – Khelsea Frick of Harrisburg – was arrested for endangering a child and several drug offenses. After further investigation officers obtained an arrest warrant charging Norman – Frick’s paramour – with the same offenses and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to apprehend him.

This morning at about 10 a.m., members of the fugitive task force arrested Norman without incident in the 100 block of Sylvan Terrace, Harrisburg. He was turned over to Harrisburg officers for booking and arraignment.

U.S. Marshal Martin Pane said, “The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the importance of bringing those charged with endangering children to justice and gives special attention to these cases. It is my hope that the community will find comfort knowing this defendant will face justice in the court system.”

The USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 21 state, county and local police agencies, including: the Harrisburg Bureau of Police; the Pennsylvania State Police; the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole; the Lower Paxton Township Police Department; the Swatara Township Police Department; the Derry Township Police Department; the Steelton Police Department; the Dauphin County Adult Probation Office; and the Dauphin County Work Release Center - all of whom participated in this arrest.
