UPDATE – The U.S. Marshals New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force is confirming the arrest of Charles Donte Terrell Holley, 31 of Rochester, New York, after a crash at the intersection of Genesee and Sawyer Street Friday night. Holley allegedly discarded a handgun as authorities were taking him into custody and a bulletproof vest was also recovered from the scene.
Holley was wanted on a parole violation warrant issued by New York State DOCCS from a 2015 Robbery 2nd conviction, where he and others stole property from Home Depot and assaulted a security officer who attempted to stop them. Holley will face additional local charges for a felon in possession of a weapon from last nights arrest.
“These types of violent offenders are exactly who the U.S. Marshals Task Force works tirelessly to apprehend day after day” said U.S. Marshal Charles Salina, “we will continue to collaborate with our local authorities to apprehend these offenders in the City of Rochester and the Western New York area”.
Many local agencies are involved with the U.S. Marshals NYNJRFTF including the Monroe County Sheriff’s. “I am grateful for the tenacity that our deputies and the other members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force display each day, putting their lives at risk in the name of taking violent criminals off our streets,” said Monroe County Sheriff Todd K. Baxter. “Last night’s apprehension of this wanted felon, armed with a gun, is yet another example of the dangerous police work our men and women do every day to keep our community safe.”
