STERLING, Va. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers arrested Houston man Moyosore Kolawole Fashola, 50, at Washington Dulles International Airport Monday on an outstanding Texas felony arrest warrant for engaging in organized criminal activity.
CBP officers confirmed with Harris County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office authorities that Fashola’s warrant remained active and that authorities requested Fashola to be extradited. CBP officers then verified Fashola's identity after he arrived aboard a flight from Dubai, U.A.E.
CBP officers turned Fashola over to Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority Police.
“We were pleased to stand by our state and local law enforcement partners and bring this fugitive to justice,” said Wayne Biondi CBP Port Director for the Port of Washington Dulles. “As our nation's primary border security and enforcement agency, CBP remains ever vigilant to intercept fugitives, as well as illicit or prohibited products at our port's of entry.”
