What was the US Marshall’s jurisdiction in this case?

US Marshal deputies apprehend fugitives. They don’t have a “jurisdiction” per se (other than all US Territory).

I’m guessing, they were directed to the house by local or federal officers; however, they do research and use technology to track and apprehend fugitives, and if that is was what happened in this incident, someone is going back to guarding courtrooms!

Excellent question! The U.S. Marshall's office has been tracking down fugitives for about 30 years now. This will shock many of the posters here, but many times, fugitives flee so they won't be caught, and they are not arrested at their own home. So, using what resources are available to them, the Marshall's office apprehends people all the time who are on the run.

There is a huge irony all the posters have missed here.

The "bad" thing was that the Marshalls came to the wrong house, and arrested the wrong guy when the warrant said he was "black." But thanks to this clerical error, he was released, although the article doesn't give a time frame. However, if there had not been this error, and the warrant listed him as "white," he would still be in jail.

Somewhere out there, is someone with this guy's name, DOB, and SSN who is wanted on drug and gun charges. And evidently, he is "white."
