CBP Officers in Florida Arrest Man Wanted for Lewd and Lascivious Battery

Release Date: 
July 22, 2015

MIAMI – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers at Miami International Airport (MIA) intercepted a wanted fugitive arriving from Mexico on July 10. The individual had an outstanding warrant for lewd and lascivious battery out of Seminole County, Florida.

The 32-year-old male, a U.S. citizen, was identified after he presented himself for CBP inspection at Miami International Airport. Officers fingerprinted the subject to confirm his identity and verified the warrant with law enforcement officials. The subject was turned over to the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) for extradition to Seminole County, Florida.

“CBP officers work closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement partners to make sure wanted fugitives face justice,” said Miami International Airport Port Director Christopher Maston. “We remain vigilant and will continue to proactively address threats, minimize vulnerabilities and maximize security.”

CBP conducts inspection operations and intercepts currency, weapons, prohibited agriculture products and other illicit items, and on average arrests 22 wanted persons a day at U. S. ports of entry nationwide.
