U.S. Marshals: 6abc.com reader tips lead to 3rd arrest (PHOTOS)
PHILADELPHIA - January 11, 2013 (WPVI) -- The U.S Marshals have arrested another suspect on their most wanted list and, again, they say the tip came from a 6abc.com reader.
Steven Barrick, 45, with addresses in both Philadelphia and Hatboro, was arrested on Friday morning in Sebastian, Florida.
Investigators say they arrested Barrick as he left a trailer home around 8:00 a.m.
Barrick was featured in the "U.S. Marshals ID Most Wanted in Philly" slideshow on 6abc.com.
The Marshals say two separate tips from 6abc.com readers led to the arrest. Those tipsters will be receiving cash rewards, the Marshals said.
In all, five of the men identified as "most wanted" have been arrested since the feature was launched, with three of those arrests coming from tips provided by 6abc.com readers, the U.S. Marshals said.
Barrick was wanted for a series of indecent exposures which occurred at the Queen Lane and Chestnut Hill Train Stations. He was also wanted by the Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit for three incidents involving indecent exposure, open lewdness and one case for failing to appear.
According to court records, Barrick has been arrested 18 times dating back to 1986 for offenses including indecent exposure, open lewdness, theft, robbery, simple assault, reckless endangerment and terroristic threats.
