The U.S Marshals arrested a man walking his dog in Rochester and he ended up being the second most wanted man in Philadelphia.

The Marshals Fugitive Task Force arrested Tymere Jones. He's wanted for attempted murder and armed robbery in Philadelphia.

The undercover Deputy Marshal spotted Jones walking his dog next to an old cemetery on Congress Avenue, near Genesee Park Boulevard.

Charles Salina, U.S. Marshal, said, "He was approached by the arresting officer, asked for his identification, he gave a fictitious name, but our officers are good and they knew he had a couple of tattoos on his forearm and immediately saw the tattoos and placed him into custody without incident.

So why was Jones on Congress Avenue in Rochester? And how did they know he was there? News10NBC asked the marshal that a couple of times. He wouldn't reveal their intelligence and just called it good police work.
