Shenandoah Police Chief, Law Enforcement Recognized for Work in Schuylkill County Cases

Earlier this week, the United State's Attorney office recognized a Schuylkill County Police Chief and other law enforcement that were involved in other cases that involved Schuylkill County.

On Thursday, Acting U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler named 14 members of law enforcement that will be honored for their outstanding contributions to public safety in 2020. 

These awards are made each year to a select group of individuals who perform in an exceptional manner and who make significant contributions to the United States Attorney Office’s efforts to promote public safety.

Out of those 14 named, Shenandoah Police Chief George Carado was recognized for his work as a FBI Task Force Officer in a case from the Allentown area where two individuals were trafficking drugs that included heroin into Schuylkill County and other areas.  Also recognized for their work in this case was FBI Special Agent Alan Jones and FBI Task Force Officer Chris Keppel.  Their work in the investigation led to conviction of the two individuals involved and a lengthy prison sentence.

Jones, was also recognized for his work in the case in finding Shawn Christy, of McAdoo, when he was a wanted fugitive.  

Jones' work along with Deputy U.S. Marshal Robert Lenahan, U.S. Secret Service Special Agent Michael Armstrong, and an anonymous U.S. Marshal led to Christy being captured, convicted, and sentenced for 20 years.
