Williamsport, PA – United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced today that the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Fugitive Task Force arrested 24-year old Evan Heller and 29-year old Shawna Shay in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania.

During the overnight hours between November 19 and November 20, 2013, Perry’s Country Store, located in Austin Borough (Potter County) was burglarized. The suspects stole at least 13 new and used firearms, as well as other merchandise. The Pennsylvania State Police, Coudersport Station, investigated the case. Heller and Shay were identified as the suspects. On November 20, an arrest warrant was issued by Magisterial District Judge Delores Weiss in Galeton, charging both Heller and Shay with:

1 count of Burglary
1 count of Possession of Prohibited Firearms
14 counts of Theft by Unlawful Taking – Movable Property
14 counts of Receiving Stolen Property
1 count of Criminal Mischief – Damage Property

On November 23, the USMS Middle District of Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force received an investigative lead from their counterparts in the Western District of Pennsylvania. During the early morning hours of November 24, USMS fugitive task force officers, along with members of the Pennsylvania State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) located and arrested Heller and Shay in the 300 block of West Spruce Street in Port Matilda. Both individuals were taken into custody without incident.

United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “We place a high priority on fugitive cases like this one. Because of the coordinated efforts of federal, state and local law enforcement, these two suspects were quickly apprehended.”

U.S. Marshals were assisted by personnel from the Pennsylvania State Police and the Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office. These agencies are participating members of the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in the Middle District of Pennsylvania. Additional assistance was provided by U.S. Marshals Service personnel in the Western District of Pennsylvania, as well as by the ATF.

Thinking back to the prosecution for the Mahaley's Track Repair burglary. Perhaps it is time for a discussion of consequences, zero-tolerance warnings and patterns of behavior/causes. Just sayin'.
