Minneapolis, MN – Fugitive couple from Duluth, MN arrested near Dinkytown following foot pursuit

Minneapolis, MN – Celina Marie Alvarez was a wanted felony fugitive from justice from the Duluth, MN area until the Twin Cities Apprehension Team located the female on the 1000 block of 16th Ave SE on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at approximately 11 PM. <br><br>

Alvarez was taken into custody without incident, but her fugitive boyfriend wasn’t nearly as compliant. Justin Charles Dowell fled the scene on foot and was able to elude Minneapolis PD and Twin Cities Apprehension Team agents for about an hour, until TCAT agent Stew Peters located the male at an area gas station. <br><br>

Alvarez was booked into the Hennepin County jail on her warrant(s), and is being held for St Louis County. Dowell was arrested for new felony drug crimes, and was also booked into jail on his outstanding felony warrants.

Twin Cities Apprehension Team Relies on Social Media, YouTube Videos For Exposure

The Twin Cities Apprehension Team has been growing rapidly in the social media world, specifically on their YouTube Channel, where subscribers have been growing rapidly. This may be part of a growing demand for transparency in law enforcement nationwide, according to Stew Peters, the agency’s lead investigator. “We are not in the public sector, however the job is very similar, and I think with the lack of footage available to the public, this kind of content interests most folks”, said Peters.

As part of the approach to apprehensions, TCAT oftentimes posts wanted fugitives on their Facebook page, or even on their Twitter account @TcatMN.

The busy Minneapolis-based apprehension team has recently put a trailer video on their YouTube page, which can be seen HERE.

“We hope more and more will subscribe to our various outlets”, said Peters while continuing, “the larger the audience we have in the social media world, the less likely it is that someone will be able to hide…”.

Marshali Carlvin is in custody following a 2 day investigation, disrupts felony fugitive’s plan to flee the state of Minnesota

Brooklyn Park, MN – Marshali Carlvin was located by agents with the Twin Cities Apprehension Team and taken into custody on the 3200 block of 74th Circle North in Brooklyn Park on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 at approximately 11 AM.

Carlvin, who had felony warrant(s) in Washington County, and additional warrant(s) in Ramsey County, had plans to flee the state of Minnesota and head to Iowa, according to social media posts on her Facebook page. Those plans were disrupted when TCAT agents surprised the wanted female as she was arriving at a friend’s home to pack her bags.

Carlvin’s warrant was handed off to the bail investigators at TCAT on Monday morning after she had failed to appear before District Court back in February of this year. Carlvin was wanted for felony aid/abet theft in Washington County, and had multiple other theft related warrant(s) in Washington and Ramsey Counties.

Stew Peters, director of investigations at TCAT, said that Carlvin was taken into custody without incident and transported directly to the Washington County jail, where she remains in custody pending a bail hearing. “Carlvin has demonstrated that she is an increased risk of flight”, said Peters.
