Toronto - A fugitive from Ohio was arrested on February 25 in Toronto by the Toronto Police Fugitive Squad as he left a residence. He had been wanted by Wood County, Ohio since 2003.
Fatjon Kazazi, a native of Albania, had been wanted since 2003 when he failed to serve an 8 year sentence for marijuana possession. He had been on bond pending an appeal on the case.
In 2009 investigators learned that Kazazi was living in Toronto under an alias. He was under surveillance while an Extradition Warrant was processed. While the suspect denied this identity when he was faced with his fingerprints, photographs and other evidence he admitted his real name.
Kazazi remains in Toronto waiting for pending court proceedings. When the order of removal has been issued he will be transported to Ohio by the U.S. Marshals.
U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott praised the determination of the investigators and prosecutors in this case, stating, “This was truly a unique case that required considerable cooperation between county, federal, and international law enforcement partners in order to reach a successful conclusion.”
