Las Vegas, NV
– Buddy and Sharon Anderson, a couple wanted on state charges stemming out of
Texas, were arrested late Tuesday afternoon by members of the U.S. Marshals led
fugitive task force Nevada FIST (Fugitive Investigative Strike Team) and the Las
Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
Buddy and Sharon Anderson were being sought on warrants issued by the Ennis (TX)
Police Department on charges of possession of child pornography. The couple was
apprehended without incident in the vicinity of Owens Avenue and Las Vegas
Boulevard. They were booked into the Clark County Detention Center and are
awaiting extradition back to Texas.
United States Marshal Christopher Hoye III stated that, “Many fugitives attempt
to run and hide in our great state. However, the united law enforcement
community has again brought fugitives to justice.”
Nevada FIST is a permanent task force that brings together the resources and
expertise of state, local, and federal agencies in a coordinated effort to
arrest dangerous and violent fugitives. Nevada FIST is led by the U.S. Marshals
and is comprised of Deputy U.S. Marshals and law enforcement officers from the
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the Nevada Department of Public
Safety, and the Nevada Department of Corrections.
