A man being sought in a violent kidnapping and robbery in Berks County has been apprehended more than 1,800 miles away.
Marshall Glenn McGinty was taken into custody without incident by police at a Walmart in Casper, Wyoming, Pennsylvania State Police in Reading announced Thursday.
McGinty, armed with an AK-47, tied up a man who was house-sitting a home in the 1300 block of Hawk Mountain Road in Albany Township on Feb. 16 and then drove the victim in his car to a bank in Pottsville, Schuylkill County, where he forced him to withdraw $60 from an ATM, according to state police.
McGinty then drove the victim to the Hamburg reservoir in Windsor Township, Berks County, where he set him free and fled in the victim’s car, police said.
McGinty, 43, is now awaiting extradition from Wyoming to Berks County on charges of kidnapping, unlawful restraint, robbery, criminal trespass, theft, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.
He also has other arrest warrants in Berks County, as well as probation violations in neighboring Lehigh and Schuylkill counties.
