Franklin County District Attorney’s Office
Fugitive

The MAGLOCLEN intelligence research staff assisted the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office in locating a fugitive felon who had fled Pennsylvania and returned to his home state of Tennessee. The only information available was that the felon had fled to the Nashville area and was using his brother’s name. A cell phone number was obtained for the fugitive through a confidential source, and a ping order was obtained for the phone. The pings would only place the subject in a general area and were not consistently putting him at any one location. The MAGLOCLEN staff gathered reports, which provided multiple addresses for the fugitive’s brother and the fugitive. In comparing the ping data to the addresses listed for the fugitive and his brother, it was found that one of the frequent ping locations was very close to one of the brother’s listed residences. This information was relayed to the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Nashville. The fugitive was taken into custody within a few days, after he was observed leaving a residence that the task force had placed under surveillance. The information provided by the MAGLOCLEN staff helped narrow a large number of possible locations to just a handful, which ultimately expedited the apprehension of the fugitive.
