FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - The U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force and the Fairbanks Area Narcotics Team arrested a North Pole man on Tuesday after an investigation by the Fairbanks Police Department. Brandon Laszloffy, 24, was being sought on warrants for multiple charges including first degree robbery, attempted assault in the first degree and misconduct involving weapons in the first degree.

The charges were related to an incident from Dec. 9 that left multiple people wounded with gunshots during an alleged drug deal gone bad. During the incident Fairbanks Police Department alleges that Roger Brown Jr. was trying to sell drugs to Laszloffy and Gabrielle Titus, who then attempted to rob him at gunpoint. Brown began shooting at them striking Laszloffy and a third unidentified person in the vehicle. Both Titus and Brown were arrested at the time; however, Laszloffy was released from the hospital before police were able to contact him.

Lieutenant Amy Davis of the FPD Detective Unit said. “He (Laszloffy) was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries. By the time we figured out what was going on and went to interview him he was already gone from the hospital. When we tried to contact him we weren’t able to get in contact with him.”

Davis said that the detectives worked with the Marshals to locate Laszloffy and arrest him.

Laszloffy was arrested Tuesday in North Pole. According to a press release, lead detectives at FPD worked closely with Deputy U.S. Marshals to locate and arrest Laszloffy.
