Canadian Officials Deport Vermont Fugitive to U.S. Marshals

Burlington, VT -- The U.S. Marshals Service Vermont Violent Offender Task Force (VVOTF) facilitated the Canadian deportation of a Vermont fugitive who had been on the run for 7 years.

Matthew S. Patry, 35, formerly of Burlington, Vermont was arrested in Blainville, Quebec on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 after a lengthy U.S. Marshal Service fugitive investigation. Patry has been on the run since April 2007, when he absconded from Furlough and failed to comply with the sex offender registry requirements.

On June 25, 2014, the U.S. Marshals Service, in conjunction with the Canada Boarder Service Agency CBSA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Vermont State Police successfully deported Patry to the United States from Canada. Patry, who was in custody in Canada since June 3, 2014, was turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service at the Highgate, Vermont Port of Entry. Patry will be arraigned in Chittenden Criminal Court.

Patry’s arrest and deportation to the United States was a result of a culmination of investigative efforts by the U.S. Marshals VVOTF, CBSA, CBP and the Vermont State Police.
