AKRON -- U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott, Summit County Sheriff Steve Barry and Akron Police Chief Kenneth Ball announced Monday evening that authorities in northern Indiana arrested Robert Lee Greathouse, 53.

Greathouse, who is believed to be a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, has been on the run since April after he cut off his court-ordered ankle monitor.

In September 2018, the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Greathouse based on charges of felonious assault after a shooting in Akron. Members of the task force tracked Greathouse to a rural cabin in Cadiz, Ohio. Two pistols and a rifle were recovered out of the home at the time of his arrest.

In April of this year, Greathouse was given a short term furlough prior to beginning his prison sentence on the felonious assault case. The task force began working on the case almost immediately. Investigations into Greathouse’s whereabouts took investigators into various cities in Ohio, West Virginia and ultimately his arrest in Bourbon, Ind. earlier this evening. Greathouse will remain in custody in Indiana until he can be extradited back to Akron.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of a known fugitive is encouraged to contact the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at: 1-866-4-WANTED or text keyword WANTED and the tip to TIP411 (847411). Tipsters may remain anonymous and a cash reward may be available. The Task Force’s “Dangerous Dozen” fugitives can be viewed at http://www.usmarshals.gov/district/oh-
