Newark Police Arrest One of City’s 12 Most Wanted

The Newark Police Department’s Fugitive Apprehension Team arrested one of the city’s 12 most wanted criminals this week.

Keith Herd, 20, of Newark was wanted by police for playing a role in a March 12 incident during which police said he shot and wounded an 18-year-old Newark man. He was also wanted for a role he played in a March 21 incident in which he and two other suspects, also in custody, committed an armed robbery and assault of a 21-year-old Newark woman, police said.

Police said Herd, who was considered armed and dangerous, was arrested on June 10 at about 8 a.m. on Runyon Street without incident. He was charged in both incidents with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon. The first incident also carried a charge of possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and the second incident added charges of robbery and conspiracy.
