Back behind bars: Fugitive again nabbed by US Marshals

ALBANY TWP., Pa. - A man's run from the law has again come to an end near the border between Berks and Lehigh counties.

U.S. Marshals said they apprehended Harvey Shaner on Tuesday at his girlfriend's home in the 7600 block of Dresher Road in Lynn Township, Lehigh County.

Shaner had been sought since December 22, when he walked away from the federal prison in Butler Township, Schuylkill County, where he is serving a 51-month sentence for his guilty plea in a 2016 fraud case, officials said.

Shaner was initially apprehended at his girlfriend's home in October, after a five-hour search of the woods in that area. At the time, he had failed to report to federal authorities to begin serving his sentence, officials said.
