Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrest of Javier Sabdiel Santos – a 20-year old Mechanicsburg man.

On January 30, 2020, the Mount Holly Springs Police Department investigated a home invasion robbery in which a victim was stabbed and threatened with a handgun. As a result of their investigation, officers obtained an arrest warrant charging Santos with Robbery, Burglary, Aggravated Assault and lesser included offenses. Attempts to find Santos were unsuccessful and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to locate him.

Today at about 4 p.m., Santos was arrested in the 400 block of Silver Springs Road, Mechanicsburg without incident. He was turned over to the Silver Spring Township Police Department for arraignment and booking.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, "The U.S. Marshals Service and its task force partners place a high priority on fugitive cases involving suspects with violent tendencies. They worked hard to locate and apprehend this fugitive and I commend their efforts."

The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 20 state, county and local police agencies, including: the Pennsylvania State Police; the Harrisburg Bureau of Police; the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole; the Swatara Township Police Department; the Lower Paxton Township Police Department; and, the Dauphin County Adult Probation Office – all of whom participated in this investigation. The task force was also greatly assisted by the Silver Spring Township Police Department.
