U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Man Wanted for State Parole and Megan’s Law Violations

Harrisburg, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Troy McFall, a 43-year old Harrisburg resident.

On July 28, 2005, McFall was convicted of Aggravated Indecent Assault in Dauphin County. In September of 2014, he was released to a half-way house in Harrisburg. On October 21, 2014, the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole charged McFall as an absconder after he failed to return to the half-way house. On October 30, 2014, the Pennsylvania Capitol Police charged McFall for failing to update his sex offender registration information (Megan’s Law).

On December 10 at about 1:15 p.m., deputy U.S. marshals and task force officers from the Harrisburg office arrested McFall in the 1900 block of State Street, Harrisburg without incident. He was turned over to agents of the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 named the U.S. Marshals as the federal agency responsible for tracking down Megan’s Law violators. We take that duty seriously.”

The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania is comprised of 23 state, county and local police agencies, including the Pennsylvania State Police; the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole; the Harrisburg Bureau of Police and the Dauphin County Adult Probation Office – all of whom participated in McFall’s arrest.
