Long Haul Trucker Arrested By Long Arm of the Law
Fugitive Arrested On 17 Counts of Child Pornography

LSFTF LogoSan Antonio, TX – James Troy, 45, was arrested this afternoon by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio, TX without incident. An arrest warrant was sought by the Pima County Sheriff’s Office in Tucson, AZ, where it is alleged that Troy committed 17 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor under 15 years of age.

This afternoon, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was contacted by the Warrant Apprehension Networking and Targeting Enforcement Division (WANTED) Task Force from Tucson, AZ, for assistance in locating and apprehending Troy. Task force officers in Tucson received information that Troy was employed as a truck driver and was en route to San Antonio. Task force officers in San Antonio determined that Troy was completing deliveries at a Lowes Home Improvement store, located in the 200 block of southwest Loop 410. Task force officers initiated surveillance and later observed Troy entering his truck. Task force officers approached the truck and Troy was immediately arrested.

Troy is currently being held in the Bexar County Jail without bond.

On February 7, 2012, Troy allegedly committed sexual exploitation of a minor under 15 years of age by distributing, transporting, exhibiting, receiving, selling, purchasing, electronically transmitting, possessing, or exchanging child pornography via the internet. The arrest warrant was issued earlier this month.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “Thanks to the collaborative efforts of the WANTED Task Force and the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force another sexual predator was taken into custody. This crime was allegedly committed almost a year ago, but whatever is done in the dark will soon come to light.”
