20-year-old Rashamel Okise Gardner was wanted by the Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police Department on two separate warrants charging him with Robbery by Sudden Snatching for incidents at F.P.

The case was referred to the Savannah Office of the United States Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force to locate and apprehend Gardner. 

The Marshals Task Force found information that Gardner was in a house at 908 Waters Avenue, in Savannah and officers surrounded the home and gained entry to look for Gardner.
