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…”.

Kyle William Brenizer was released from jail, but still had an active felony warrant in another county

St Paul, MN – Kyle William Brenizer was located and taken into custody on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 in the 1600 block of Arundel in St Paul.

Brenizer was a familiar face to the arrest team, as he was recently turned over to Sherburne County officials following a TCAT investigation that led to the arrest of Brenizer at the Red River Zoo in West Fargo, ND on January 12, just 11 days previous.

Brenizer is a convicted predatory sex offender which stems from a conviction where he was found guilty after being accused of providing liquor to minor(s) and committing unlawful sex acts with victim(s) aged 13-15.

Upon being jailed in Sherburne County, Brenizer posted bond, but was released before clearing a warrant for felony theft by swindle in Ramsey County. The Twin Cities Apprehension Team discovered the warrant on Tuesday and began searching for Brenizer immediately.

TCAT located the wanted fugitive at a St Paul apartment, where Brenizer refused to comply with direction or surrender himself. TCAT forced entry into the apartment taking Brenizer into custody swiftly and without further incident.
