On May 9, Camden County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies and agents from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) assisted the US Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (SERFTF) in arresting Antonio Deshawn Daniels for a murder that occurred August 8, 1993 in Detroit. Daniels was located and arrested mid-day on May, 7, 2014 in a residence in the Point Peter area.
Daniels initially refused to acknowledge his true identity until confronted with
fingerprint evidence. He was then taken into custody without incident. The hunt
for Daniels was restarted when approximately one month ago the Detroit Fugitive
Apprehension Team (DFAT), led by the US Marshals, took a fresh look at the case. DFAT investigators developed leads that brought them to southeast Georgia and eventually to Camden County.
The CCSO and the GBI were instrumental in providing surveillance and knowledge of the area to bring about the arrest.
Sheriff Jim Proctor said that communication and coordination were key to locating and arresting Daniels.
“This is a prime example of what is possible when federal, state and local
agencies work together. We always stand ready to render as much aid and assistance to law enforcement from any jurisdiction.
