Woman Wanted in Indiana Found by CBP in The Virgin Islands
ST. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands - Wednesday night U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers detected a female traveler with an outstanding warrant for failing to appear at a court hearing in Porter County, Ind.
CBP Officers detected Sherry L. Young, 43, (aka Sherry L. McClain, Sherry L. Foster, Sherry L. Brownbridge) at the Henry E. Rholsen Airport before boarding a US Airways flight bound for Akron Canton International Airport, via San Juan and Philadelphia International Airports.
Computer systems alerted to a positive match to a National Crime Information Center docket, which indicated a warrant for Young for failure to appear for a driving under the influence charge.
After corroborating the warrant, CBP officers allowed Young to finish her route, where the Summit County Sheriff's Office made the formal arrest.
Through pre-clearance inspections, CBP Officers detect many individuals wanted by authorities in the continental United States, upon their return to the mainland from Puerto Rico and the USVI.
"CBP officers are always vigilant of dangerous individuals who try to move freely, trying to elude detection," stated Marcelino Borges, director of Field Operations for Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands. "Technology and close collaboration amongst law enforcement allows us to detect felons and bring them to justice."
