Law enforcement officers captured a Stafford County fugitive at his girlfriend's home in Manassas Tuesday morning, the U.S. Marshals Service announced. 

Armando Uvario-Romo was wanted in Stafford County for the sexual assault of a 14-year-old, according to a Marshals Service press release. Authorities said that he was living at his girlfriend's Manassas home, even though she was aware of his criminal history.

That's a beautiful headline right there... made me feel all warm & fuzzy inside... :D No word on them arresting the girlfriend for obstruction & / or harboring a fugitive?? You can run, but you can't hide!! Good job to all agencies involved. Now to prosecute the scumbag to the fullest extent of the law! :)

I was thinking the same thing why didnt the police arrest her, pretty evident that she isnt law abiding citizen.

Should have been handled on a more local Basis. The Diplomatic Security Service have bigger fish to fry. Our local law enforcement has more then the experience to handle this situation when it comes to apprehending this dirt bag. Speaking of frying, I wonder how he is doing in his new environment.
