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.

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…”.

Jon Anthony Hogness, wanted for felony criminal sexual conduct involving minor child and gun warrants, in custody following 11 month run from justice.

St Paul, MN – The Twin Cities Apprehension Team located the agency’s “most wanted” fugitive on May 13, 2020 at approximately midnight and apprehended the wanted fugitive accused of felony criminal sexual conduct involving minor child and felony possession of firearms, ending a run from justice that lasted nearly a year.

Hogness was wanted in Ramsey County for felony firearms possession after he failed to appear before District Court in June of 2019 (Court file no 62-CR-18-6761), and felony criminal sexual conduct in the third degree (involving a minor child) in Washington County (Court file no 82-CR-18-3960).

Hogness was originally thought to be in Arizona and later in the Columbus Township in Anoka County, but was ultimately located on the 1500 block of Greenbrier St on St Paul’s notorious Eastside.

The apprehension was not without incident as agents from TCAT were on scene for more than two hours as Hogness barricaded with another male inside of the residence.

After TCAT agents made entry into the home, Hogness was swiftly taken into custody by the arrest team, assisted by the Twin Cities Apprehension Team K-9 unit.

Another male was transported to jail after it was discovered he had felony warrants for engaging in electronic communications relating or describing sexual conduct with children, and additional warrant(s) for soliciting a child to engage in sexual conduct.
