SOFAST Arrests Kidnapping Suspect in Cincinnati

Cincinnati, OH - The U.S. Marshals’ Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested fugitive Michael D. Burroughs on September 8, 2015 on an outstanding warrant from the Hamilton County Municipal Court, Cincinnati, Ohio on a charge of Kidnapping and Robbery.

Burroughs, 27, was wanted by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and the warrant was assigned to a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Deputy assigned to SOFAST. Burroughs allegedly kidnapped and robbed the female victim inside a vehicle. Burroughs also purportedly assaulted the female victim and held her against her will during this incident. Burroughs is reportedly a member of the Kennedy Heights Posse street gang in Cincinnati, Ohio. SOFAST located and arrested Burroughs on the listed charges in the area of the 4000 block of Forest Ave in Cincinnati.

Burroughs is currently in custody in the Hamilton County Jail in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Cincinnati’s SOFAST is a fugitive focused; U.S. Marshals Service led task force consisting of local, state, and federal authorities including the Cincinnati Police Department, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Butler County Sheriff’s Office, Colerain Township Police Department, and the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.

U.S. Marshals are the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization and capture more federal fugitives each year than all other law enforcement agencies combined.
