ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The United States Marshals Service NY/NJ Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested four violent offenders on Thursday and recovered two loaded handguns in the process.

Marshals arrested Jeffrey Denson, 36, for second degree menacing involving a firearm and say he had a handgun on him at the time. Mobile Patrol does not have a mugshot available for him as of Friday night.

Kezzron Smith, 34, was arrested by the taskforce for menacing involving a firearm after a short struggle where a task force member was injured. A handgun was recovered. Marshals say he is currently on parole so he will be charged with additional parole violations.

Marshals say Eliud Bennett, 49, was arrested on a violent assault warrant issued by Rochester Police Department and Denicio Yard, 28, was arrested on a menacing with a firearm charge issued by Rochester Police Department.

Marshals say while one task force member was injured, it was not serious and none of the other arrests resulted in injuries.
