SAVANNAH, GA (June 22, 2018) – Yesterday, the US Marshal’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (SERFTF) worked in conjunction with Savannah Police to arrest a suspect who was wanted for murder in Rome, Georgia.

SERFTF was requested to assist in the apprehension of Grady Harper Jr., 29, by the Rome Police Department, after information was received about him fleeing to Savannah. Through gathered intelligence and surveillance, Task Force officers along with Savannah Police officers determined Harper’s location.

Officers responded to the 200 block of Holland Drive, where they located and arrested Harper. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Chatham County Detention Center to await extradition.

“This is an excellent example of how we work with our partner agencies, both near and far, to locate and arrest these violent offenders,” said Chief Mark Revenew. “Public safety is this city’s top priority, and this arrest has removed a potentially dangerous person from our community.”
