January 20, 2012

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — U.S. marshals Thursday captured a man in Charles Town who was wanted in an armed home invasion in Pennsylvania, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

Authorities learned that Andrew Baumgartner, 25, was at a house on Jefferson Terrace when they received a tip from another U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force in Harrisburg, Pa., according to a news release from the Mountain State Fugitive Task Force.

Baumgartner was wanted by Susquehanna Township Police on charges stemming from his alleged involvement in an armed home-invasion robbery in Dauphin County, Pa., the release said.

Another man has already been taken into custody in the robbery, which involved the theft of cash and drugs, the release said.

Baumgartner was charged as a fugitive from justice and awaits extradition back to Pennsylvania for prosecution, the release said.
