ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRIGIN ISLANDS—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers identified yesterday a passenger with an outstanding arrest warrant from Houston, Texas.
CBP Officers identified Sheila Love, 47, with an outstanding warrant for felony insurance fraud from the 209th District Court, Harris Co, Texas, upon her arrival at the Edward Wilmont Blyden Seaport Terminal in St. Thomas on board the M/V Carnival Glory from the Bahamas.
CBP Officers confirmed Ms. Love's identity and verified that the warrant was valid. Ms. Love's custody was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations for extradition.
"The use of law enforcement databases and the interviewing techniques of our officers are essential tools used to prevent that entry of those who pose a security threat or are fugitives of the law," said Marcelino Borges, director of Field Operations for Puerto Rico and the USVI.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
