A 27-year-old Topeka man wanted on several Shawnee County warrants is in jail on Friday after being arrested without incident at a residence in East Topeka by the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force.
Pedro Delreal Jr., 27, of 400 S.E. 18th, was booked into Shawnee County Jail at 11:35 a.m. Friday in connection to Shawnee County warrants for violation of offender registration, possession of drugs, and interference with law enforcement.
All three of those counts are nonbondable.
U.S. Marshal’s Office Chief Deputy Craig Beam said Delreal was jailed in the 500 block of S.E. Woodland after following up on a tip after fleeing from officers Thursday in the area of S.E. 18th and Madison. He said apprehending Delreal had been “a high priority case.”
According to the Kansas Department of Corrections website, Delreal was convicted of a Dec. 2007 attempted assault on a law enforcement officer.
Beam said the task force is comprised of U.S. marshals, Topeka police officers, Shawnee County Sheriff’s deputies and Kansas Department of Corrections officers.
