Tuesday, August 28 – US Marshals Nab Ocean City Fugitive

OCEAN CITY – A Newark, Del. man wanted in Ocean City on manslaughter, reckless endangerment and drug distribution charges was caught last week by U.S. Marshals in Wilmington and is now awaiting extradition to Worcester County to face the charges.

The U.S. Marshals First State Fugitive Task Force arrested Aaron Joseph Hrehocik, 23, of Newark, Del., around 11 a.m. last Friday in Wilmington.

Earlier last week, the U.S. Marshals fugitive task force, through the Delaware State Police received a request from the Ocean City Police Department to attempt to locate and arrest Hrehocik.

After a brief investigation, the task force was able to determine Hrehocik was working for an on-site car detailing service in Wilmington and he was arrested without incident a short time later while detailing a customer’s car in Wilmington.

Hrehocik is wanted in Ocean City for the distribution of oxycodone, reckless endangerment and manslaughter. Hrehocik was transported to Delaware State Police for his arraignment and a hearing on his extradition to Worcester County.
