The U.S. Marshals are on the hunt for an area man wanted in an armed kidnapping in D.C. last month, and they are asking the public for information to help track him down.
A warrant for 26-year-old Jeff Brown were issued out of D.C. Superior Court in October, and marshals deputies say they’ve been aggressively searching for him escape. Deputies have caught up o Brown on a couple occasions but he was able to escape, once on foot and once in a vehicle.
He was last seen in Capital Heights in a silver Audi with black rims. Marshals are turning to the public to help find him down before someone gets hurt.
“Brown is desperate and willing to go to extremes to evade capture. He is receiving help from friends and does not want to go back to jail,” said Matt Burke, supervisory inspector for the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force. “We want the public’s help in sending this dangerous fugitive back to jail before he hurts someone.”
Brown has a history of arrests for narcotics and firearms violations. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Brown is listed as 6-feet-tall and 150 pounds, with tattoos of writing on his left neck, chest and upper right arm.
Brown has lived and frequented the areas of Capital Heights and Greenbelt, and Southeast and Northwest Washington.
Anyone with information should contact the task force at 301-489-1717.
