ST. CROIX - A 37-year old man trying to board a flight at Rohlsen Airport on St. Croix was arrested Saturday on an outstanding warrant from Florida.
Imron Stewart Mathurin, 37, who last resided in Georgia, was identified after he presented himself for customs inspection at Rohlsen Airport as he prepared to board a flight that was bound to Miami with Atlanta as his final destination, according to Customs and Border Protection.
Mathurin is wanted an outstanding warrant on charges of probation violation and failure to appear at a court hearing from Broward County in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., according to a statement issued Monday by Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Brenda Padial.
The National Criminal Information Center law enforcement database alerted officers to the outstanding warrant, and he was taken into custody, she said.
After confirming Mathurin's identity and verifying the outstanding warrant, Customs and Border Protection officers on at Rohlsen Airport contacted officers in Miami and made arrangements for them to meet Mathurin plane-side upon his arrival in Miami.
The Miami Dade Police Department was notified, responded and took Mathurin into their custody when he arrived in Miami, according to Padial.
