U.S. Marshals Task Force in Pensacola Capture Alabama Man Wanted for Kidnapping;
Nebraska Fugitive Also Apprehended

Pensacola, FL – The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force in Pensacola arrested a man wanted from Dallas County, AL on charges of Kidnapping in the 1st Degree. James Frank Carter was arrested at a house on the 1400 Block of Dexter Avenue in Pensacola around 10:30 this morning. Carter, 51, is charged with one count of kidnapping on the warrant that dates back to April of 2007. The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Fugitive Task Force in Mobile first requested assistance from the Pensacola Task Force in August of this summer but leads went stale. However both Task Forces kept their investigations open and then a few weeks ago Carter popped back up on the radar in Pensacola. Since then the Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force has been conducting hours of surveillance until this morning when it finally paid off.

Shortly after, the Pensacola Task Force and Escambia Warrant Squad Investigators arrested a Century woman, Rena Camerlinck, at her place of employment in Pensacola. The 40 year old Camerlinck is wanted on a 2005 Forgery warrant in Cass County, just outside of Omaha, NE. Investigators caught up with her at the Motel 6 on Highway 29 after they went to her house earlier on the 3000 block of Highway 4A.

Carter and Camerlinck were both arrested without incident and booked into the Escambia County Jail where they will be held until extradition.

Last year, Marshals and their task force partners apprehended more than 36,400 federal fugitives and cleared more than 39,300 federal felony warrants. Working with authorities at the federal, state and local levels, U.S. Marshals-led fugitive task forces arrested an additional 90,806 state and local fugitives, clearing 116,944 state and local felony warrants.
