Philadelphia, PA
– Members of the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task
Force arrested Glenn “Bless” Long, 28, for federal narcotics
trafficking, at approximately 5:15 a.m. on July 14th in the 600 block of
Darlington Road in Middletown Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
Long was wanted for a September 2018 Drug Enforcement Agency indictment
out of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania for conspiracy to distribute
controlled substances. Long was also being sought for a March 2021
indictment by the District of New Jersey for conspiracy to distribute
controlled substances. Additionally, Long was a Pennsylvania State Board
of Probation and Parole fugitive since October 2018. The fugitive case
was delegated to the U.S. Marshals Service in 2018 and was worked
jointly with Special Agents of the DEA over the past 3 years.

On July 14th, Deputy Marshals from the U.S.
Marshals Eastern Pennsylvania Violent Crime Fugitive Task Force, Special
Agents of the DEA, and members of the Pennsylvania State Police Special
Emergency Response Team (SERT) executed a federal search warrant in
Middletown Township, Delaware County. Information developed by federal
agents suggested Long may be hiding out with an associate in the 600
block of Darlington Road. Upon the execution of the search warrant, Long
was located by the Pennsylvania State Police SERT teams hiding in a
closet. Long was then arrested without incident and transported to the
Federal Detention Center in Philadelphia where he awaits his initial
court appearance.
Eric Gartner, U.S. Marshal for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania, said “We appreciate the opportunity to support
the DEA in helping our community free itself of a dangerous fugitive
wanted for multi-state drug distribution. Special thanks to the
Pennsylvania State Police SERT teams who played a critical role in
ensuring this fugitive’s safe apprehension.”
