Burlington, VT -- The U.S. Marshals
Service Vermont Violent Offender Task Force (VVOTF) arrested a Vermont
fugitive who has been on the run since 2007.
Matthew S. Patry, 35, formerly of Burlington, Vermont was arrested in
Blainesville, Quebec on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 when located by the Canada
Border Service Agency (CBSA). Patry has been on the run since April 2007,
when he absconded from Furlough. In October 2007 it was also determined by
state officials that Patry was out of compliance with the Vermont Sex
Offender Registry and an arrest warrant was issued for Patry for failing to
comply with the Vermont Sex Offender Registry. The Vermont Department of
Corrections contacted the U.S. Marshals Service, seeking assistance in
locating Patry, as his whereabouts have been unknown since 2007. During the
course of the investigation, Deputy U.S. Marshals developed information that
Patry may have illegally entered into Canada and was living under an alias.
With the assistance of Canadian officials, Patry was arrested in
Blainesville, Quebec. When arrested, it was also determined that Patry, who
was living under an alias, had two active arrest warrants in Canada, one for
DUI and one for Aggravated Assault in Montreal.
Patry will be facing Canadian criminal charges as it pertains to the two (2)
active Canada arrest warrants. At the conclusion of those proceedings, Patry
will then be deported to the United States to face criminal prosecution for
the outstanding arrest warrants in Vermont.
Patry’s arrest was a result of a culmination of investigative efforts by the
U.S. Marshals VVOTF, the U.S. Marshal Service District of Virginia,
Louisiana, Indiana, the Canada Border Service Agency and the Vermont State
