Kansas Fugitive Caught In New Mexico

KSAL StaffApril 4, 2014

A traffic stop in New Mexico has resulted in the arrest of a Kansas fugitive.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department says deputies working on an interstate criminal enforcement team arrested 39-year-old Patrick Close on a Kansas warrant accusing him of a sex crime involving a child under age 14.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, Close was in a vehicle stopped Thursday while traveling eastbound on Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque for failure to stay in a lane.

The Sheriff’s Department says it learned from investigators in Kansas’ Jefferson County that Close was placed on Kansas’ most-wanted list because it was feared he was headed to Mexico.

He was arrested and jailed in Albuquerque while awaiting extradition back to Kansas.
