Attempts to find Cross in York were unsuccessful, the release stated, and the U.S. Marshals Service was asked to apprehend him. Investigators followed leads in four municipalities in Pennsylvania, three in New York, and in North Carolina and Virginia.

About 3:30 p.m. Friday, Cross was taken into custody at a home in the 100 block of North 10th Street in Suffolk, the press release stated. The Suffolk Police Department SWAT made the arrest without incident, the release stated.

He was incarcerated at the Western Tidewater Regional Jail to await extradition to Pennsylvania.

“The coordination and cooperation demonstrated by law enforcement in this case led to an extremely dangerous and unpredictable fugitive being taken off the streets,” U.S. Marshal Martin J. Pane stated in the press release. “It is our top priority to arrest violent fugitives, especially those who have no regard for human life.”
