Upon receiving the Attorney General’s request for assistance, FIU detectives developed information that McFarland was living at a Swedesboro address, where he was taken into custody without incident. Complaints were prepared charging McFarland with being a fugitive from justice in Arizona and he was turned over to the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Department.
