BREAKING 4pm 6-23-08 Operation AGUILA Arrests 147 Fugitives by Caddo-Bossier Task Force
Click here to listen as Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal Tommy Hancock conducts the "Operation AGUILA" News Conference in SPD Chief Henry Whitehorn's conference room. Hancock said, traditionally, a larger fugitive task force, "Operation FALCON" is conducted every year across the Caddo-Bossier parishes, but that was scaled down this year to three teams in "Operation AGUILA."
This time, Hancock said, "Operation FALCON" was held in Alexandria and Lafayette utilizing involving 8 to 10 teams.
"Operation AGUILA" combined the collective efforts of multiple law enforcement agencies focusing on capturing individuals wanted on felony charges, including sex offenders and fugitives wanted for crimes of violence.
Over the course of the five-day operation, Deputy U.S. Marshals, teamed with federal, state, and local law enforcement partners across Caddo and Bossier parishes, arrested 147 fugitives and cleared 153 warrants.
Each of these arrests carries with it a story. One such story is the arrest of Marlon Montgomery, who was arrested on Tuesday, June 17th, after a federal grand jury indicted him for Felon in Possession of a Firearm. Task force officers, including ATF, arrested him at a Bossier City apartment complex. During the arrest, an additional firearm, .380 caliber Highpoint pistol was seized which was in his possession.
The Marshals have many duties, one of which if to manage local and regional fugitive task forces. There are currently more that ninety (90) district fugitive task forces managed by the U.S. Marshals.
These task forces net over 56,000 state and local arrests each year. The vast majority of these arrests are violent felons on the run posing a danger to our fellow citizens.
Operations such as FALCON and AGUILA exist to pool the various resources from the federal, state, and local governments and use those resources in a concerted effort to locate and arrest violent fugitives.
