2 Fugitives Arrested In Maine For Alleged Child Sex Crimes
Thanks to the hard working men and women of the Maine State Police, two fugitives from justice are now in custody.
According to a press release from the Maine Department of Public Safety, on Monday afternoon members of the Maine State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit and Southern Field Troop received information that a pair of fugitives wanted by the State of Oklahoma were traveling through Maine in a tractor-trailer.
The truck were reportedly traveling in a truck that is owned by Semi Transport Inc, of Chicago. The pair are employed by the company.
An investigation led law enforcement to 400 Killick Pond Road in Hollis, Maine. There, they found and arrested 40 year old Casey Mumford and his wife, 38 year old Elizabeth Mumford. Both Mumfords are reportedly from Norman, Oklahoma. They were taken into custody without incident.
The press release goes on to say:
The subjects were wanted on felony charges in Oklahoma including sexual exploitation of a minor, sexual abuse of a minor, manufacturing child pornography, enabling child sexual abuse, and child neglect.
Both subjects were transported to the York County Jail and charged with being a Fugitive from Justice. They are currently awaiting arraignment and extradition to Oklahoma.
Their employer reportedly had no idea that they were wanted on the aforementioned charges.
*All suspects are considered innocent until found guilty in a court of law*
Providing the allegations are true, we are all sickened by this case. It is tragic enough when adults are victims of crimes like this, it is truly awful when the victims are children. Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families.
