Shaw identified the Fugitive as Jasmine Santos, age 22, of Woodbine Street, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Santos was added to the Clearfield County Fugitive of the Week list on February 29, 2016.

An Affidavit of Probable Cause filed by Trooper Patrick states that on May 16, 2015, Santos was visiting an inmate at the State Correctional Institute at Houtzdale.
