TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

More than 8 months after a Waterville man was shot and killed in his home, members of the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) and Toledo Police have arrested their fourth and final suspect.

Three men, Adam Anderson, 20, Ronald Rooker, 32 and James Allen, 18, were arrested shortly after the murder. Evidence lead a grand jury to indict Phillip Allen Jr. on aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery charges on December 18.

NOVFTF and Toledo Police officials say they found Allen hiding in the attic of a home on Ontario Street in north Toledo Wednesday. Allen was arrested and taken to the Lucas County Jail.

James Safadi was shot and killed in his Waterville home May 18, 2013. His girlfriend told NOVFTF and Toledo Police officials three males broke into their home, stealing an undisclosed amount of money and a ring off her finger. According to a source close to the investigation, seven handguns were also stolen, along with a large amount of ammunition.

Another man, 25-year-old Joel Brown of Toledo, was also arrested at the scene. NOVFTF marshalls and Toledo Police charged Brown with obstruction of justice and weapons under disability. Police say a .380 Smith & Wesson was recovered from the home.
