This week, the U.S. Marshals have come to us for help finding a fugitive they’ve hit all dead ends with.

Sampson Baldwin has been on the run for years now with an extensive criminal history of guns and drugs.

He’s the fugitive the U.S. Marshals cannot get a good lead on, and that’s why they need your help.

“This guy’s known to evade capture, we don’t know where he’s at right now,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia said. “We frankly don’t know who’s helping him, we’ve been looking for this guy for several years and that’s why we’re coming to the viewers, we need help finding this guy.”

Baldwin served 12 years in prison and he’s been ordered to go back.

“We know this isn’t the first time he ran, we had to track this guy down in 2009 and we found him hiding in an attack,” Garcia said.

It was then Baldwin was caught with a gun, violating his probation and was sentenced to spend another 30 months in federal prison.

But Garcia says he cut his tether and has been gone ever since.

“This guy could be hiding amongst us in our neighbors in your community,” Garcia said.

He warns Baldwin’s dangerous - convicted of selling a least 15 kilograms of crack cocaine and having the guns to protect his drugs.

“He could be hiding, working at a gas station, could be working at your local WalMart, he could be using another name, another alias, Garcia said.

Baldwin has connections to West Virginia, Maryland, Chicago and Massachusetts.

“We know he has a lot of ties here in Detroit and we know a viewer knows where he’s at, we know a family member knows where he’s at,” Garcia said. “Come on in, turn yourself in.”

Sampson Baldwin is 6’01” 205 pounds and should be considered armed and dangerous.

“We need the viewers help, we have hit every dead end there is,” he said.

As always the Marshals are offering a reward for any information leading to Sampson Baldwin’s arrest.
