U.S. Marshals: 7th arrest from 6abc.com reader tips (PHOTOS)
PHILADELPHIA - January 30, 2013 (WPVI) -- The U.S. Marshals say a tip from a 6abc.com led to yet another arrest of their "Most Wanted" fugitives.
Shamsuddin Hasan was wanted for firearms violation in Delaware County and also has a warrant for failure to appear for homicide by vehicle in Montgomery County.
Hasan was arrested around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday in the 1300 block of Lombard Street by the U.S. Marshals Task Force and the Philadelphia District Attorney's office.
Hasan's arrest came after a tip from a 6abc.com reader, the Marshals said.
Hasan's capture was the seventh arrest attributed to tips from 6abc.com readers.
Meanwhile, the Marshals said they were able to cross another name off their "Most Wanted" list on Wednesday morning. Rakeim Womack, who was wanted for a December, 2012 murder, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals and the Philadelphia Police Homicide Fugitive Unit.

Tipsters are eligible for rewards, the Marshals said, at an average of $1,000.
