U.S. Marshals Arrest Violent Fugitive

Norfolk, VA – United States Marshal Robert W. Mathieson announces the capture of Antonio Demon Smith. Smith was wanted out of the City of Chesapeake for Malicious Wounding, Robbery, Assault, Unlawful Use of a Vehicle and Strong Arm Robbery.

This morning, deputies and task force officers arrested Smith at a home on the 1700 block of Parrish St. in Chesapeake. Investigators and detectives were able to gather information, which they used to hone in on this particular address. Smith was taken into custody without incident.

The U.S. Marshals led task force consists of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, Chesapeake Sheriff’s Department, Newport News Police Department, Portsmouth Police Department and Norfolk Police Department. The main objective of the task force is to seek out and arrest violent offenders with outstanding federal and state warrants.
