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…”.

Orville Redale Foster, 55, was located by the Twin Cities Apprehension Team after several anonymous tips began flowing into the 24 hour tip line on the evening of Thursday, May 23, 2019.
