If You are Wanted do not Fly, MA Fugitive with Two Outstanding Warrants Nabbed

By SOP newswire

ST. THOMAS, USVI-- On January 23, 2008, Customs and Border Protection Officers at the Cyril E. King Airport detained a passenger with two outstanding arrest warrants in the state of Massachusetts.  The 49 year old man was wanted for violation of a restraining order and assault. Passenger was apprehended when attempting to depart St. Thomas, Virgin Islands onboard AA flight 5139 to San Juan, Puerto Rico.  His final destination was Miami, Florida where he resides.

Mr. Mark Crowley was taken into custody and after arrest warrants were confirmed he was turned over to Virgin Islands Port Authority Police Officers to complete extradition processing.

This apprehension was the direct result of CBP’s use of name queries during primary inspections and CBP officers’ attention to detail during interviews and inspection of documents.

“The San Juan Field Office has detained over 10 fugitives of the law attempting to cross our borders during the first quarter of fiscal year 2008.  Customs and Border Protection use of technology and enforcement efforts ensures that fugitives are apprehended”, said Marcelino Borges, Director Field Operations.  “Law enforcement agencies need to work together to maintain our nation safe.”
