Derrick Holliday, 25, one of five men indicted in U.S. District Court in relation to the September robbery of the Swap Meet, was arrested Friday in New York City, according to court papers filed Monday.
U.S. marshals found Mr. Holliday, of the Hill District, hiding under a bed in an apartment in Queens. The other four men indicted for firearms, robbery and narcotics crimes in relation to the attempt to rob the Swap Meet were already incarcerated.
The robbery drew attention because it resulted in a shootout just blocks from the North Side police station, and because one of the responding officers was injured. Police said the indoor flea market concealed a drug packaging operation.
