Maine fugitive sweep nets 120

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — The U.S. Marshal’s Office says it has arrested 120 fugitives in Maine in a sweep that started June 1.

David Viles, U.S. Marshal for Maine, says the effort known as FALCON was part of a monthlong national and international sweep. Arrests in Maine included fugitives wanted for crimes of violence, firearms and narcotics violations and sex offenses.

Among those arrested was Benjamin Carroll, who was wanted in Alabama for kidnapping, robbery and burglary stemming from a May 20 home invasion in which Carroll and three others allegedly tied up an elderly couple and held them at gunpoint while robbing them. Carroll was arrested in Saco where he was going door to door selling magazines.
