Arizona Murder Suspect Recaptured in College Park J’Saan Strover Had Been On The Run Since Thursday Morning

College Park, GA – An Arizona murder suspect who escaped police custody has been recaptured in College Park. J’Saan Carlos Strover had been on the run since early Thursday morning after breaking free from two Maricopa County, Arizona law enforcement officers at the rental car facility while being transported to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

“I am deeply grateful to the men and women of the College Park Police Department who worked tirelessly to apprehend the suspect,” said College Park Mayor Bianca Motley Broom. “Our community will rest easier knowing he is in custody.”

Officials say Strover originally fled into a wooded area near the 4000 block of Global Gateway Connector in College Park. Strover was spotted shortly after 11pm, having been identified by callers in the area. College Park officers searched a wooded area near Camp Creek Parkway, and were able to place Strover under arrest.

“Our officers performed a great service to the community in apprehending this escapee,” stated Interim College Park Police Chief Thomas Kuzniacki. “Their determination, along with all participating public safety partners is greatly appreciated, while we return this suspect to detention.”

Multiple public safety organizations - Atlanta PD, College Park PD, Clayton and Fulton County Sheriffs Departments and the U.S. Marshals participated in the search. Strover was wanted in Arizona on charges relating to a February 19th incident; he had been in the Fulton County Jail since April 12.
