Tips lead to fugitive Daniel Ward's arrest

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force has announced the arrest of fugitive Daniel Ward, who was wanted for rape.

Ward was taken into custody on Friday morning based on tips from the public. U.S. Marshals say there were little to no leads in this case until Ward was profiled as Fugitive of the Week just three days earlier.

If you have any information on a fugitive's whereabouts, contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED or text keyword "WANTED" with the tip to TIP411. Tipsters can remain anonymous and reward money is available.
