‘America’s Most Wanted’ fugitive arrested in Patton Township

A man wanted for a killing in Washington, D.C., and featured on the TV show “America’s Most Wanted” has been arrested in Centre County.

Patton Township police said Tuesday that Reynard Cook was arrested last week on charges of providing false identification to law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

Cook was found to be wanted by the U.S. Marshals Service Arlington Office on homicide charges.

Authorities in Washington, D.C., say Cook shot and killed a woman there in 2012.

Cook was placed in Centre County Correctional Facility on $10,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at the Centre County Courthouse.
