Corsicana Police Department:
CORSICANA (KYTX) - At about 10:30 a.m. (Corsicana time) (5:30 Hawaii time) Friday, March 15, 2013, two fugitives from Corsicana were arrested at the Honolulu, Hawaii International Airport with assistance from the Honolulu Police Department, Honolulu Sheriff's Department, Department of Homeland Security, and the Dallas and Honolulu offices of the United States Marshal's Service.
The fugitives were identified as Tarius Manuere, 43 years of age, of Corsicana and his brother, Noah Manuere, 40 years of age, of Corsicana. Both fugitives were arrested on a warrant for aggravated sexual assault of a child, which is a first degree felony. The warrants had been obtained by Detective Ronni Phillips on January 8, 2013 after Justice of the Peace Kirby Hill had issued them.
The fugitives were arrested without incident before they could depart on a United Airlines plane for the island of Majuro, which is part of the Federated States of Micronesia, which consists of hundreds of small islands in the South Pacific. The United States does not currently have an extradition treaty with the Federated States of Micronesia. Both fugitives will be held at the Honolulu Police Department Jail pending extradition back to Corsicana.
Chief Bratton commended Det. Phillips, along with Sgt. Mark Nanny and Det. Michael Dockery, for their hard work in helping to arrest the fugitives. Chief Bratton also commended all the law enforcement agencies and the Navarro County District Attorney's Office for working together to apprehend the fugitives.
