U.S. Marshals Arrest Violent Fugitive in Benson

Burlington, VT - The U.S. Marshals Service Vermont Violent Offender Task Force (VVOTF) arrested a Vermont fugitive who was wanted for Aggravated Domestic Assault-1st Degree, amongst other charges.

Derrick Morin, 31, of Williston, Vermont was arrested in Benson, Vermont on January 16, 2015, when confronted by members of the VVOTF. Morin was wanted on three active warrants in Chittenden County and had been on the run since late November, 2014. Morin’s warrants were related to a charge of 1st Degree Aggravated Domestic Assault, Possession of Cocaine and two counts of Driving with a Suspended License. His whereabouts were unknown.

The Williston Police Department contacted the U.S. Marshals Service on January 12, 2015, seeking their assistance in locating Morin, as Morin was actively evading authorities and living on the run. While on the run, Morin’s travels had taken him out of Vermont, and when apprehended Morin was hours away from again fleeing the state.

Morin was transported to the Chittenden County Superior Court, Criminal Division, where he was held without bail for a probation violation.

Morin’s arrest was a result of a culmination of investigative efforts by the U.S. Marshals VVOTF, the Vermont State Police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal
Operations (ERO).
