By  | 

Reno, Nevada – The United States Marshals Service (USMS) led Fugitive Task Force announces the arrests of Justin McMinn, Adam Dimick, and Joseph Cordova Wednesday in Sparks, NV.

Justin McMinn, 23, has an outstanding arrest warrant from Yuba County, CA for armed robbery. The USMS Nevada Fugitive Investigative Strike Team (FIST) was asked to assist in the investigation to locate and apprehend McMinn.

The investigation led Task Force personnel to a residence in Sparks. After an extended surveillance, investigators witnessed McMinn entering a vehicle. The Task Force, with the assistance of a Sparks
Police Department marked unit, apprehended the subject near the intersection of Prater Way and McCarran Boulevard. Two additional individuals found in the vehicle, Adam Dimick, 23, and Joseph
Cordova, 25, were arrested on separate charges. Dimick was arrested for an outstanding Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS) probation violation. Cordova, a convicted felon, was found in possession of a stolen handgun.

All three men were booked into the Washoe County jail.

District of Nevada U.S. Marshal Christopher Hoye says, “This successful investigation is another example of how effective the combined resources of the participating task force agencies can be in
making Reno a safer place by quickly removing dangerous felons from the community.”

Nevada FIST is a permanent task force which brings together the resources and expertise of state, local and federal agencies in a coordinated effort to arrest dangerous fugitives and pursue sexual offenders anywhere located.

The Nevada FIST, led by the U.S. Marshals Service, is partnership comprised of law enforcement investigators from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, the Nevada Department of Public Safety (Probation & Parole), Sparks Police Department, and the Reno Police Department. In addition, the task force works closely any law enforcement agency seeking assistance.

Last year the Reno Nevada FIST Task Force arrested 244 individuals wanted on state, local, and federal felony charges.
