U.S. Marshals major case arrest

Claremont, CA – Cassandra HENRY and husband Corry HENRY were arrested in Claremont, CA by Claremont Police Department. Corry HENRY was wanted for violating his Federal Supervised Release. Cassandra Henry was wanted for numerous violent felony acts against the elderly. Acting on information provided by U.S. Marshals Mid-South Fugitive Task Force both were taken into custody without incident.

 

Cassandra HENRY was wanted in multiple States/Jurisdictions for robbing and assaulting the elderly and nursing home patients.  Her most recent victims were an 89 and 87 year old women. HENRY and husband Corry Henry allegedly gained entry into their residences and would rob them of their purses, credit cards and whatever money they had. Within 20 minutes of these incidences they would proceed to the nearest stores such as Wal-Mart and Best-Buy and purchase items on the victims cards. Cassandra HENRY's profile has been aired at least four times on several media networks in the Mid-South region. Her case was upgraded and considered a Major Case Investigation by the U.S. Marshals Service.

 

Several weeks ago, HENRY called one of Task Force officers with the case stating that “you police might as well give up trying to catch me…I am too good… you will never get me.”

 

HENRY’s crime spree has ended and has spanned across the nation in states including but not limited to Tennessee, California, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri and Kentucky. Both are in the Los Angeles County Jail awaiting extradition.
