1 min read


Scranton, PA
– Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane
announced the arrest of Jerome Kasey, a 41-year-old man, from Baltimore,
Maryland.

On November 16, 2021, the Harrisburg Bureau of Police
investigated a homicide at the intersection of Swatara and Evergreen
Streets. And, on November 19th, detectives obtained an arrest warrant
charging Kasey with homicide and firearms offenses. Kasey could not be
found, and the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force was
asked to apprehend him.

In late December of 2021, the Fugitive
Task Force learned that Kasey was traveling with James Williams – a
28-year-old-man wanted for absconding from Dauphin County Probation.
Further, the task force learned that both men would be found in Lubbock,
Texas.

Today at about 1 p.m., members of the fugitive task force
arrested Kasey and Williams in the 2600 block of East Baylor Street,
Lubbock, Texas, without incident. They were turned over to the Lubbock
Police Department for booking and arraignment.

United States
Marshal Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service is the nation’s primary
fugitive investigative agency and arrests more than 4,000 alleged
murderers each year. We add Jerome Kasey’s name to that list and by
doing so we are making our communities safer.”

The USMS Fugitive
Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 21
state, county, and local police agencies; including the Harrisburg
Bureau of Police, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Pennsylvania Board
of Probation and Parole, the Dauphin County Adult Probation Office, the
Swatara Township Police Department, the Derry Township Police
Department, and the Lower Paxton Township Police Department – all of
whom participated in this investigation.
