HARRISBURG, PA. – Deputy U.S. Marshals arrest a Harrisburg man wanted on a murder charge in Maryland. Harrisburg City Police are holding an arrest warrant for John McDonald, III, 22, charging him with criminal homicide.
Fearing that McDonald would flee the state, Harrisburg City Police requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshal Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force in locating McDonald.
The U.S. Marshals and local police arrested McDonald without incident in the 5800 block of Royal Oak Avenue, Baltimore. He was turned over to local authorities pending his extradition back to Dauphin County.
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The coordination and cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case led directly to a dangerous fugitive being taken off the streets. It is our top priority to arrest violent crime fugitives, especially those who have no regard for human life.”
