Fugitive wanted in connection with Sheffield Lake stabbing arrested


CLEVELAND – One of Northern Ohio’s most dangerous fugitives was arrested Tuesday morning.

Deputies with the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Troy Adamini, 23, of Brooklyn, at 10 a.m. in a home in the 3600 block of West 47th Street in Cleveland, according to Deputy Tony Keffer, Lorain County task coordinator for the U.S. Marshals Service.

Adamini had been added to the task force’s November “Dangerous Dozen” list, which was released Monday. He was wanted on two counts of felonious assault stemming from an Aug. 26 incident in Sheffield Lake in which he stabbed another male during a narcotics deal gone bad, Sheffield Lake Police Chief Tony Campo said.

The task force received a tip Monday evening placing Adamini at the residence in Cleveland, where he had been hiding out, according to a news release from the U.S. Marshal’s Office.

Deputies also arrested Brittany Holstein, 20, of Sheffield Lake, who was wanted on obstruction of justice charges stemming from the same incident, Keffer said. Holstein and Adamini had been indicted on the charges on Nov. 6 in Lorain County Common Pleas Court.

Keffer said one of Holstein’s family members lived in the Cleveland home. He said the family member was hesitant to open the door, but opened it once deputies threatened to use force. The pair were sleeping in a bedroom and were arrested without incident, Keffer said.

Drug paraphernalia was also found in the room. The pair was transported to Lorain County Jail.

“This is another successful example of the public utilizing current technology to anonymously deliver us information critically needed to locate and apprehend another dangerous fugitive,” Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Roberto Robinson said in the news release. “We thank the media for delivering this information to the public and the concerned citizen that responded to it.”
