Dangerous Dozen

U.S. Marshal Peter J. Elliott has released the July 2011 updated "Dangerous Dozen" list of most wanted fugitives for the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF).

The flyer displays a photo, name, Date of Birth, charge and area of interest for the current "Dangerous Dozen." With Internet access, anyone can click on each photo on the flyer and view full wanted posters for each fugitive, which contain larger pictures and more information on the fugitive.  The public can also go to www.usmarshals.gov/district/oh-n/fugitives to view the fugitives and wanted posters.

One new fugitive was added to the list this month to replace one captured fugitive.  Jvyn Tucker is a Cleveland, Ohio area fugitive wanted for attempted murder, robbery with a firearm and assault with a firearm.  The charges all stem from one incident in May 2011 which occurred in Garfield Heights, Ohio, in which Tucker approached the victim who was waiting at a bus stop located at E. 131st Street and Maplerow Avenue.  Tucker allegedly pulled a handgun and robbed the victim, struck the victim in the face and then fired at the victim as the victim tried to flee, striking the victim in the leg.

All of the fugitives on the "Dangerous Dozen" should be considered dangerous individuals and should not be approached by the general public.  If anyone has information concerning the whereabouts of these fugitives, they are encouraged to contact the NOVFTF toll free at (866) 4WANTED.  Callers may remain anonymous and cash rewards are available for information leading to the arrest of any of these fugitives.

Since the inception of the "Dangerous Dozen" program in May 2010, the NOVFTF has apprehended 55 of the 66 fugitives profiled on this list.  Of the 55 apprehended, 37 were a direct result of the exposure from the media and assistance of the public.
