New Jersey Top 10 Fugitive Arrested By U.S. Marshals

Wanted for Weapons Violation and Narcotics Distribution

Atlantic City, NJ – Members of the U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force - Atlantic City Division - arrested one of New Jersey’s Top 10 fugitives today.

Trevin Allen, a fugitive affiliated with the Dirty Blok Gang, was wanted by the Atlantic City Police Department for a weapons violation and distribution of narcotics. His charges and gang affiliation landed him on the New Jersey State Police – Atlantic City Police Department’s Top 10 List.

The fugitive investigation for Allen gained momentum when task force investigators developed leads regarding Allen’s possible whereabouts. Those leads narrowed the search to Millville, New Jersey, and Allen was soon arrested without incident during a traffic stop.

“The final chapter of justice denied has been written,” said Juan Mattos, Jr., U.S. Marshal of New Jersey. “Allen will now be held accountable for his crimes.”

U.S. Marshals Service task forces are interagency teams of criminal investigators dedicated to the location and apprehension of local, state, and federal fugitives. More than 104,800 fugitives were arrested by the U.S. Marshals during FY 2014.
