LOUDONVILLE, OH – Early Monday morning John A. Corey, who has been wanted since March 2nd for assault on a police officer, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in Durham, North Carolina. 

On Saturday, March 2nd, a Loudonville police officer attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Corey, who was wanted at the time on various drug charges. Corey failed to stop for the officer, who took pursuit. That pursuit ended with Corey crashing his vehicle. When the officer made contact with Corey he fought with the officer and evaded arrest.

The fugitive case was turned over to the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force on March 5th. Investigators were led to Durham, North Carolina as a location where Corey possibly fled and on the morning of March 11th he was arrested without incident. Corey will remain in North Carolina pending extradition back to Ohio.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “The reach of the U.S. Marshals Service is great, and it is no greater than when a member of law enforcement is assaulted. Our officers will work day in and day out until fugitives like this are apprehended.”
