U.S. Marshals Task Force Arrests Luzerne County Fugitive in Oregon

Scranton, PA – Today, U.S. Marshal Martin Pane announced the arrest of Guy Haughwout, 46, who is wanted for failure to appear for court on June 15, 2015.

On July 7th, 2015, at approximately 11:00 P.M. Pacific Time, U.S. Marshals from Eugene, Oregon visited a local trailer park after receiving information of a wanted fugitive. Haughwout was located, identified and arrested without incident. The arrest resulted after members of the U.S. Marshals Service Middle District of Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force investigated and learned that Haughwout fled from Pennsylvania and was heading west.

In January of 2014, Haughwout was arrested by the Pennsylvania State Police for violations of his Megan’s Law requirement for failing to provide information.

U.S. Marshal Pane said, “The Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force is committed to ensuring those who fail to register are brought to justice. We owe this to our communities.”

The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with officers from the Luzerne County Sheriff’s Office, Pennsylvania State Police, Scranton Police Department and United States Marshals Service in the District of Oregon.
