Scranton, PA
– Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Taquil Lishemel Baley, a 21-year old
Wilkes-Barre man.

On August 6, 2020, the Hanover Township Police
Department investigated a shooting in the 1100 block of South Main
Street. As a result of their investigation, officers obtained an arrest
warrant charging Baley with Aggravated Assault, weapon offenses, and
other lesser included offenses. Attempts to find Baley were unsuccessful
and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was asked to
apprehend him.

Yesterday, at about 11:00 a.m., members of the
fugitive task force checked a home in the first block of East Blain
Street in McAdoo, Schuylkill County and arrested Baley after finding him
hiding in an attic. He was turned over to the Luzerne County officials
for processing and arraignment.

United States Marshal Pane
stated, “It’s the Marshals Services’ duty to ensure that those charged
with serious crimes have their day in court. It is my sincere hope that
the affected communities will find some measure of comfort knowing this
suspect will face justice.”

The USMS 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
Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole; the Wilkes-Barre Police
Department; the Kingston Police Department; the Kingston Township Police
Department; the Bradford County Sheriff’s Office; and, the Scranton
Police Department – all of whom participated in this investigation.
