EASTON, Pa. -

A New York City man arrested in an Easton raid Thursday may have information about a fatal shooting at a downtown Easton bar earlier this month.

Easton Police and the US Marshal's Office had been searching for Miguel Angel Rodriguez, also known as DOLO, for the past several days.

Easton detectives wanted to talk to him about the homicide at Eddie G's Downtown Pub on February 9, when 33-year-old Damien Robinson, who also goes by Damien Frazier, was fatally shot.

Rodriguez was also wanted on a drug charge by Easton Police and NYPD wanted him on a conspiracy warrant.

Easton police saw Rodriguez enter an apartment at 516 Glendon Avenue around 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

Officials evacuated surrounding apartments out of caution given the homicide information and past incidents involving Rodriguez, police said.

Rodriguez is a known member of a gang called Very Crispy gangster out of NYC.

Rodriguez and other individuals in the apartment barricaded themselves in the apartment, police said, but later three people, including Rodriguez exited the residence and were taken into custody.

Rodriguez is facing charges of delivery of a controlled substance. He also has an arrest warrant from Easton Police for DUI and giving false identification to a law enforcement officer for a February 8 traffic stop.

Jeffrey Raymond, 28, was also arrested on drug charges.
