U.S. Marshals Arrest Sex Offender

Washington, DC – A sex offender wanted on an outstanding United States Parole Commission warrant for violating his conditions of release has been arrested by a team of U.S. Marshals in Washington, D.C.

Scott Breeze was being sought on a warrant issued in Washington D.C. charging him with violating his conditions of release by having contact with minors. Breeze is accused of attending the Lorton Great Escape Prison to Park event on September 15, 2012. This event comprised of family friendly activities and children’s games.

U.S. Marshals acted immediately upon receiving the warrant and arrested Breeze without incident. U.S. Marshal for the District of Columbia Edwin Sloane stated, “I’m extremely proud of the diligence and action taken by my Deputy Marshals in apprehending the fugitive in a timely manner”. Breeze is currently held at the D.C. Jail pending a United States Parole Commission hearing.

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