U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force Arrests Kentucky Bank Robbery Suspect

Williamsport, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane announced that the United States Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested Daryl Ingram – a 44-year old man in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

On April 20, 2009, the Lexington Police Department responded to a report of a bank robbery. The investigation revealed that the suspect was armed with a deadly weapon and threatened the use of immediate physical force to accomplish this crime. The suspect was later identified as Daryl Ingram.

On August 3rd, District Court Judge T. Bell issued an arrest warrant charging Ingram with the following crimes:

    Robbery, 1st Degree
    Possession of firearm by convicted felon
    Theft of identity of another w/o consent

The case was adopted by the Central Kentucky Fugitive Task Force, which is led by US Marshals out of Lexington, KY. After exhausting leads in both Virginia and Georgia, Marshals in Kentucky believed that Ingram may have fled to the Williamsport, PA area and sent an investigative lead to the Middle District of Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force.

On March 5th, Deputy U.S. Marshals and Task Force Officers arrested Ingram without incident in the 700 block of West Edwin Street in Williamsport. Ingram was taken before Judge Alan Page. Ingram was remanded after he failed to post the $350,000 bond issued by Judge Page. Ingram currently awaits his extradition back to Kentucky.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force places a high priority on fugitive cases in which the use or threat of violence against innocent victims occurs. Robbery of a bank undermines our society and fugitives like Ingram deserve their day in court. We have given him that opportunity.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office. This agency is a participating member of the USMS Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
