U.S. Marshals Task Force Capture a Wanted Sex Offender in Texas on 2006 Warrant

Released by the U.S. Marshals Service:

Galveston, TX – The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force in Pensacola coordinated the arrest of a convicted sex offender who has been sought by Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office and the Task Force for over five years. Randolph Carroll Flinn was arrested by U.S. Marshals and members from the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders & Fugitive Task Force in Galveston around noon yesterday after learning that Flinn was hiding out in a town outside of Galveston and using the alias "Ray Dyer". The Marshals went to the home of an elderly woman in Baycliff where Flinn was staying, identified him and took him into custody without incident.

"He was featured as a Most Wanted fugitive on our Task Force website," stated Inspector Dominic Guadagnoli of the Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force. "We recently began coordinating with AMW (America's Most Wanted) to profile Flinn on their program, said Guadagnoli.

Flinn was wanted by Santa Rosa on two warrants, one charging him with Probation Violation in March of 2006 and the other for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender that was issued in October of 2006. The original charge stemmed from a 2003 conviction of Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a Minor that reportedly began in 1992 and continued up until the time the warrant was issued. Contact was made with a victim in this case who said she "…is happy and can finally rest at night," now that he is in custody. Santa Rosa Sheriff's Office first requested the Task Force's help in locating Flinn in 2007 and have been working with them following lead since then. Flinn is being held without bond in the Galveston County Jail.
