Ocean County Fugitive’s Two Decades On The Run Ends In Florida

A fugitive who’s been on the New Jersey State Police 12 Most Wanted list since 1995 for charges filed three years earlier is cornered in Fort Lauderdale – where police say he’s been hiding for more than 15 years.

Robert Marone, 69, awaits extradition back to New Jersey following Friday’s arrest by Fort Lauderdale police.

Marone was charged with aggravated sexual assault on a minor in Ocean County in 1992. He was also sought by the state Parole Board for a parole violation connected to a 1971 murder conviction.

State troopers say that the arrest followed within an hour of a call to their tip line (800-437-7839) that helped pinpoint his whereabouts.

Police say the caller had learned that Marone was living under an alias for more than a decade and a half, and claimed to have researched text and photos on Internet postings including New Jersey’s 12 Most Wanted List.
