Allegheny County ‘Most Wanted’ Fugitive Apprehended At Ohio Homeless Shelter

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (KDKA) — A McKees Rocks man who was on Allegheny County’s “Most Wanted” list was apprehended in Ohio on Saturday.

Cody Shaw, 26, was found at a homeless shelter in Steubenville.

Shaw was wanted for failing to appear at a preliminary hearing for an aggravated assault charge.

The sheriff’s office says in August 2016, McKees Rock police were sent to Shaw’s residence for a report of a disturbance. A female at the scene told officers she and Shaw had snorted multiple bags of heroin. When paramedics tried to treat Shaw for a possible overdose, Shaw became combative and bit a paramedic on the arm. Shaw was then charged with aggravated assault.

Shaw did not appear at his preliminary hearing and a warrant was issued on Jan. 24.

On Saturday, sheriff’s deputies received a tip that Shaw was residing at a homeless shelter in Steubenville. He was arrested by sheriff’s deputies, with assistance from Steubenville police, without incident and detained at the Jefferson County, Ohio Detention Center.

  1. That’s pretty good if Pgh’s most wanted is only for aggravated assault. I live in Los Angeles and here is a list to look at.This is why TRUMP is deporting criminals.
