TOLEDO, Ohio — The United States Marshals Service on Wednesday said a wanted Toledo man has surrendered. 

Marshals were looking for information that would lead to the arrest of fugitive Jermell Toney, 35, of Toledo.

Toney was charged with escape after being furloughed on Sept. 16, 2021, and never arriving at his intended location to serve out the remainder of his sentence for a violation of supervised release.

Toney was convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm in 2017 and was placed on federal supervised release upon serving his sentence.

On Wednesday, authorities said that Toney "surrendered to the United States Marshals Service earlier this morning. His surrender was a direct result of the media attention given to his case."
