Head of U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force in Youngstown retires

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio  -  After 33 years in law enforcement, the man who led the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force in Youngstown, and the Mahoning Valley for the last 9 and half years -- is retiring.

During his time in the Mahoning Valley, Dean Michael, and the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force made more than 7400-arrests of the area's most violent, elusive, and dangerous fugitives.

The group has also served more than 11,067 warrants in the Valley.

..Along with also taking drugs off the street, Michael and his staff have seized more than 640 weapons since he began overseeing the unit in 2004.

Alleged offenders taken off the streets include 227 murder suspects; 2,474 burglary suspects; 525 people wanted for robbery; 1,012 people wanted by police for assaults.

Michael worked in law enforcement in Pennsylvania before coming to Youngstown.

Michael says he's proud of the time he has had in the Valley, and praised his fellow Marshals and local law enforcement officers that he's worked with on the fugitive task force, and on cases in both Mahoning and Trumbull Counties.
