Update: New Bedford Man Surrenders To Police

A New Bedford man, wanted by U.S. Marshalls for a Federal probation violation, turned himself in to State and local Police Monday afternoon.  According to Det. Capt. Steve Vicente, Aaron Magnett surrendered to State Trooper David Reis and New Bedford Detective Al Silva at a location on Phillips Rd.

Earlier, Marshall spokesman Neil Sullivan says they attempted to serve a federal warrant for Violation of Supervisory Lease on Magnett in the North End section of New Bedford.

Magnett then fled on foot, and that sparked a search in the North End and along Route 140.  The suspect turned himself in around 1:30pm.

Magnett is known to New Bedford Police and was arrested on an armed robbery charge in 2008. He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 33 months in jail and two years probation.

Capt. Vicente says earlier Facebook reports that Magnett was in custody were not true and not confirmed by New Bedford Police.  Magnett will be processed at New Bedford Police Headquarters and then turned over to Federal authorities.
