“The U.S. Marshals and our law enforcement partners continue to pursue and apprehend suspects accused of violent crimes to help make our communities safer. Removing these violent offenders from our neighborhoods takes away their opportunity to commit further acts of violence. Our ongoing partnership with the Dayton Police Department was instrumental in this capture.” – Michael D. Black, United States Marshal.
