TCAT Team Member Dismissed After Alleged Incident Involving Wanted Fugitive

20 February, 2019

Our agency was made aware that a member of our team was alleged to be knowingly aiding a party that was wanted by law enforcement.

On the morning of February 19, 2019, the DOC Fugitive Task Force executed an arrest warrant at a TCAT agent’s residence at which time another party was taken into custody. That party was an active Department of Corrections fugitive after he violated the conditions of his parole. The task force took the subject into custody with minimal incident.

In a statement given at the arrest location, the TCAT agent admitted that he was aware of the subject’s wanted status, and that he knowingly provided a place for the subject to hide in an effort to evade arrest.

The Twin Cities Apprehension Team has parted ways with the former agent, effective immediately.

“I’m extremely proud of the great work this team does, and our agency has fostered many positive relationships with law enforcement agencies statewide as a result of the professionalism our team operates with”, Stew Peters, TCAT.

It is important that our agency continues to operate in a manner that upholds a positive moral compass and it is our goal to be as transparent as appropriately possible, which is why the agent has been relieved of his position with the agency, and is not eligible for re-hire in the future.
