Fargo, N.D. (U.S. Marshals Service) - U.S. Marshal Paul Ward announces the arrest of a man wanted for second degree murder in Detroit, Michigan. Clifford Lucas Biddles (32) was being sought by the U.S. Marshals Service in Michigan based on a felony warrant issued by the 36th District Court in Wayne County. The warrant charges Biddles with second degree murder, assault with intent to murder, and possession of a firearm by a felon. Biddles is also listed as a habitual offender after having been previously convicted of three or more felonies.

Thursday morning, the U.S. Marshals Service's High Plains Fugitive Task Force in Fargo received an investigative lead from deputy marshals in Detroit. The lead indicated Biddles could be located in the Fargo area. Task force officers immediately began working to locate Biddles.

The officers developed information which led them to a residence located at 3057 18th Street South in Moorhead. Officers watching the residence observed a vehicle arrive at the residence. Four subjects exited the vehicle and went into the residence. One of the subjects matched the description the officers had for Biddles. Task force officers, assisted by Moorhead police, approached the residence. Biddles opened the door of the residence and was taken into custody without incident at approximately 3:10 p.m. Biddles was transported to the Clay County Jail in Moorhead to await an extradition hearing to return to Michigan.

The High Plains Fugitive Task Force is a cooperative partnership, established in 2010, which includes the U.S. Marshals Service, Cass County Sheriff's Office, North Dakota Probation and Parole, and North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation. The task force focuses on capturing persons wanted for violent crimes. The task force has cleared over 2,000 warrants since it began.
