U.S. Marshals Pick "Peaches"
Albuquerque, New Mexico - Two major felons wanted on outstanding felony charges were arrested today in southeast Albuquerque. Reyanon "Peaches" Duncan, 23, and Frederick Timothy DeHererra Jr, 38, aka "Clowner" were featured in Albuquerque Journal last week as Albuquerque's #1 property crimes fugitives.

Reyanon Duncan was being sought on 5 felony warrants and one misdemeanor warrant. Duncan's warrants charged her with Aggravated Burglary, Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon, Auto Burglary, Auto Theft, and Possession of a Controlled Substance. Duncan has an extensive criminal history and has been arrested on over 14 different occasions. Duncan's boyfriend, DeHerrera, had an outstanding warrant for felon in possession of a firearm. DeHerrera's criminal history has expanded over 15 years and has resulted in over 24 arrests by local law enforcement.

The Albuquerque Police Department elevated Reyanon Duncan to the top of Albuquerque's Most Wanted list the day after the arrest of Lawrence Bustos the last #1 property crime offender. The Albuquerque Police Department's NITe Detectives and the U.S. Marshals Service began looking for Duncan in a collaborated effort to put property crime offenders in jail. Gorden Eden, U.S. Marshal for the District of New Mexico said "the South West Investigative Fugitive Team (SWIFT Taskforce) has arrested the last four of Albuquerque's #1 property crimes fugitives". U.S. Marshals have been investigating leads into Duncan's whereabouts for three weeks. The Marshals received information that Duncan and DeHerrera were hiding out in a motel in the area of east Central and Dorado Place SE. While conducting surveillance in the area, Deputy Marshals observed a white suburban leaving one of the motels. Inside the suburban, Deputies noticed "Peaches" wearing a fake blond wig and her boyfriend "Clowner" sitting in the rear of the vehicle. Deputies immediately conducted a traffic stop and took the two fugitives into custody without incident.

Annually, investigations carried out by the U.S. Marshals result in the apprehension of approximately 34,000 federal fugitives. More federal fugitives are arrested by Marshals than all other federal agencies combined.

The Southwest Investigative Fugitive Team is a team comprised of law enforcement officers from New Mexico State Police, New Mexico Department of Corrections, Dona Ana County Sheriff's Office, Las Cruces Police Department, Albuquerque Police Department, Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office, Rio Rancho Police Department, Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office, Santa Fe Police Department, San Juan County Sheriff's Office. The task force objective is to seek out and arrest all Violent Offenders. Last year, U.S. marshals task forces arrested more than 27,000 state and local fugitives on felony charges.
