New York Suspected Sex Abuser Arrested by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force

LSRFTF LogoAustin, TX – Leslie A. Lloyd, 46, of Binghamton, New York was arrested this morning at approximately 8:00 a.m., without incident by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in the 2800 block of Wells Branch Parkway, in Austin. Lloyd was the subject of a sex abuse investigation by the Binghamton Police Department in upstate New York. The allegations are based upon a complaint alleging Lloyd engaged in Sexual Abuse in the 1st Degree from August of 2009 through August of 2011 in the City of Binghamton where he subjected a female less than nine years old to sexual contact.

The U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force conducted a local investigation which determined Lloyd relocated to Austin in the past year. The Austin-based task force established surveillance on Wells Branch Parkway, an apartment complex Lloyd likely had moved to recently. Lloyd was observed departing from an apartment and was quickly surrounded and taken into custody.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas states, “The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force will continue to pursue fugitives who flee from their criminal actions and we will continue to seek out those that victimize our children.”

Lloyd was transported to the Travis County Sheriff and will remain in custody pending his extradition to Broome County, Binghamton, New York.
