US Marshals Present ‘In Pursuit With John Walsh’ Staff With Capture Certificates
Luis Frias, previously a US Marshals Top 15 Most Wanted fugitive, is this program's first direct result capture.
On Wednesday evening, at the In Pursuit With John Walsh call center just before a new episode’s premiere, Scott Ley with the United States Marshals Service presents a number of awards to the In Pursuit staff for the Luis Frias capture.
Frias, previously a US Marshals Top 15 Most Wanted fugitive, is this program's first direct result capture. Investigators say that after watching In Pursuit, an anonymous tipster in Mexico contacted authorities to report where he was hiding out south of the border.
The US Marshals took the tip seriously and began working the location. Within only a few days, Frias was in handcuffs and extradited back to the United States.
One of the first certificates of recognition went directly to John and Callahan Walsh for their tremendous work on the show. The second certificate was awarded to Kevin Bennett, the General Manager of Investigation Discovery; along with colleague and Coordinating Producer, Elizabeth Stephenson. The third and final award was given to the call center staff. Hotline Manager Samara Toro was on hand to accept the recognition certificate on behalf of all of the operators.
Congratulations to a job well done! Keep up the good work, #TeamInPursuit!
