U.S. Marshals Arrest Suspect Wanted for Homicide

Cleveland, OH –This morning, at approximately 9:00 a.m., the U.S. Marshal’s Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested Chevarrean Young, age 26. Young was wanted by the Cleveland Police (CPD) for murder. The charges stem from a homicide that occurred on Dec. 18th of last year. It is alleged that Young and co-defendant, David Baker, shot into a vehicle that had used their driveway to turn around. The two struck and killed the female driver of that vehicle. Baker was arrested by the U.S. Marshals in Macon, GA on January 31st.

The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) was given the case by CPD on January 1st and asked to help locate the pair. The NOVFTF developed information that Young had fled the area to Cincinnati. The NOVFTF reached out to SOFAST to help locate and apprehend Young. SOFAST discovered that Young was staying at an address near the 9900 block of Mangham Dr. in Cincinnati. SOFAST went to the residence and located Young inside. Young was transported to the Hamilton County Jail where he will wait extradition back to Cleveland.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said, “The long arm of the law reaches out and grabs another violent fugitive. This was excellent work by our counterparts in Southern Ohio. It reinforces the old saying, You can run but you can’t hide.”
