Operation North Star nabs 85 fugitives in Philadelphia region

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — More than 1,500 dangerous criminals, including those in Philadelphia, have been arrested in a nationwide operation called Operation North Star.

The US Marshals released video of the raids that took place across the city in June.

85 fugitives in Philadelphia were arrested. Between June 1 and June 30, agents took action against violent criminals in ten cities.

“Communities cannot thrive if they are constantly impacted by violent crime,” said Eric Gartner, US Marshal for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. “This surge in our state and local refugee enforcement mission focused on removing the violent offenders whose unwanted presence only serves to diminish the good citizens of Philadelphia.”

Authorities are still searching for three men wanted for separate murders. Kevin Small is wanted for murder in 2019, Shafeeq Lewis is wanted for murder in 2021, and Donald Whitingham is wanted for murder in 2022.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the US Marshals.
