(LAUREL, Del.) - A multi-jurisdiction fugitive team located a fugitive last night in Delaware who was wanted for failing to appear for sentencing in Wicomico County, Md., following his conviction of heroin importation into the state.

The fugitive is identified as Keith E. Sivels, 24. A warrant had been issued for Sivels from the Circuit Court in Wicomico County for failure to appear for a sentencing hearing on a conviction of drug (heroin) importation into Maryland.

Yesterday, an investigation by the Maryland State Apprehension Team/Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, a multi-jurisdiction team of state, federal and local police, led them to a residence in the 7000-block of Sharptown Road in Laurel, Delaware. Investigators believed Sivels hiding out at that home and observed vehicles he was believed to be driving.

Investigators surrounded the home and ultimately located Sivels inside. He was arrested without incident. Sivels waived extradition and was transported to the Wicomico County Detention Center.
