A six-month investigation to find Spencer ended this week after Marshals with the Norfolk office contacted Marshals in Dover, Delaware, informing them that Spencer could be in the area.

Marshals later tracked him down in the city of Elkton.

Spencer is being held at the Cecil County Detention Center while is awaiting extradition to Norfolk.
