4624930021

On May 29, 2022, The Frederick Police Department received notification of a possible sex offense involving a juvenile victim. The case was assigned to Det. Skelly of the Major Crimes Unit to investigate. With the assistance of Child Protective Services, Det. Skelly conducted a thorough investigation and was able to identify the suspect as Ronald Joseph Babco Jr (DOB: 08-05-1987). A warrant was issued for Babco charging him with “Sex Abuse of a Minor”. On June 27, 2022, detectives located Babco in the downtown area of Frederick City. When detectives attempted to arrest him, he fled in his vehicle. Detectives did not pursue due to the heavy vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

 

FPD requested assistance of the US Marshals Capital Region Fugitive Task Force and on June 30, 2022, Babco was located at a hotel in Hagerstown, MD and arrested by the US Marshals.

 

Babco was transported to the Frederick County Adult Detection Center for processing.
