Third Child Molester Sought by U.S. Marshals Returned to the U.S.

Phoenix, AZ – Early this morning, a convicted child molester who left a men’s shelter in Mesa in August 2009 with three other sex offenders, was returned to the United States after surrendering to authorities in Mexico.

In August 2009, Randy Brown, age 24, along with Donald Temple, Matthew Ellsworth, and Manual Dominguez left the East Valley Men’s Shelter in Mesa where they were required to reside as a condition of their probation. This facility is a transitional living center comprised partially of offenders on probation. All four individuals were on lifetime Maricopa County probation after their convictions in separate offenses for molestation of a child. Their victims ranged in age from four to eleven years old.

Late last night, Brown surrendered to authorities in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico and was taken into custody. He was then deported to the United States early this morning in Douglas, Ariz where he booked into the Cochise County Jail pending extradition to Maricopa County. U.S. Marshals in Phoenix and Tucson coordinated Brown’s surrender and return to the United States.

Last week, Temple and Ellsworth were located and taken into custody at a residence in Chihuahua, Mexico by state police based on information developed by the U.S. Marshals Service in Phoenix and deported to the United States. Dominguez is still at large.

United States Marshal David Gonzales added, “The United States Marshals Service is committed to locating fugitives who prey on children. By coordinating with our counterparts in Mexico, a convicted child molester is now in custody.” The U.S. Marshals Service is the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency. Annually, U.S. Marshals arrest more than 50 percent of all federal fugitives and serve more federal warrants than all other federal agencies combined.
