U.S. Marshals Capture Suspect Wanted for Homicide in High Point, North Carolina

Albany, NY – Members of the U.S. Marshal’s Albany Division of the New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force today arrested a suspect involved in a North Carolina homicide in May 2019.

On May 31, 2019, Rayshun Terry was gunned down in a High Point, North Carolina, neighborhood. Cinciere Turner, of High Point, was charged with his murder, and Tamontrez Collins was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and aiding and abetting first-degree murder. Collins was later released from custody on a $250,000 bond and failed to appear for a scheduled court appearance on this matter.

The NY/NJ RFTF captured Collins in Troy, New York.

“This case serves as a great example of law enforcement professionals spanning across multiple jurisdictions, working together to capture dangerous offenders wanted for murder,” said David McNulty, U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of New York. “The NY/NJ RFTF – Albany Division is honored to work alongside so many professional law enforcement organizations to bring this wanted fugitive to justice.”

Collins was expected to be presented before a judge in Troy later today.

The NY/NJ RFTF – Albany Division is composed of several different agencies across the Capital District, to include the Albany Police Department, Colonie Police Department, Greene County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Office, Schenectady Police Department, Troy Police Department, Kingston Police Department, Ulster County Sheriff’s Office, and the U.S. Marshals Service.
