U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Megan's Law Violator in Muncy

Williamsport, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Roger Geiger, 42, wanted for failing to maintain his sex offender registration requirements.

On March 30, 2015, the Lycoming County Adult Probation Office obtained an arrest warrant charging Geiger with probation violation. On the same day, the Pennsylvania State Police charged Geiger with failure to register as a sex offender - as required based on a prior conviction for statutory rape of a minor. These two agencies requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force to locate and apprehend Geiger.

Deputy U.S. Marshals developed information that Geiger may be in the Muncy, PA area. Marshals and task force officers arrested Geiger in the 500 block of Pepper Street in Muncy after finding him hiding inside a residence. Geiger was turned over to local authorities pending judicial proceedings in these cases.

United States Marshal Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service recognizes the importance of bringing those charged with serious sex crimes to justice as quickly as possible. We give these type cases our utmost attention.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the Lycoming County Adult Probation Office, Pennsylvania State Police, Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office and the Muncy Police Department.
