Harrisburg, PA – Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Skylor Fickes, a 30-year-old man with no fixed
address. Fickes was sought for:
A September 29, 2021, burglary charge
obtained by the Pennsylvania State Police – Carlisle barracks.
A November 6, 2021, failure to appear warrant
issued by the Cumberland County court after Fickes failed to answer
to charges of dealing with the proceeds of unlawful activities.
A November 12, 2021, warrant obtained by the
Northern York County Regional Police Department for Fickes’ role in
a “chop-shop” auto theft operation.
On November 24, 2021, at about 5 p.m., the
Hampden Township Police Department investigated a reported sighting of
Fickes at a business in the 4000 block of Market Street, Camp Hill. When
confronted, Fickes allegedly assaulted the officers trying to arrest
him, took one of the officer’s tasers, and fired it - striking two
officers. He escaped from the business in a vehicle. Fickes was
subsequently charged with aggravated assault on law enforcement officers
and lesser included offenses.
Attempts to find Fickes were
unsuccessful, and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force
was asked to apprehend him. Yesterday at about 8:30 p.m., officers with
the Carroll Township Police Department discovered a vehicle associated
with Fickes parked at a hotel on Route 15 in Dillsburg. Officers from
the Carroll Township, Upper Allen Township, and Hampden Township police
departments surrounded the hotel while members of the Fugitive Task
Force checked rooms for Fickes. Fickes fled from a room and ran from the
hotel. Officers gave chase and stopped him after a brief struggle.
Hampden Township Police Department took custody of Fickes for booking
