According to the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO), Brown was located Wednesday night in an apartment in Wilmington, Delaware, where he was arrested by members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force – Camden Division with assistance from U.S. Marshals First State Fugitive Task Force – Wilmington Division.

He is currently being held while awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
