Fugitive found in Nepal back in New Mexico custody

New Mexico Fugitive Captured In Nepal 14 Years Later

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- A New Mexico man who fled sex abuse and kidnapping charges 14 years ago returned to the state Saturday following his capture in Nepal, the FBI said.

Neil Stammer, 47, arrived in the afternoon at the Albuquerque International Sunport, FBI spokesman Frank Fisher said.

Stammer will be booked on outstanding warrants at the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center, according to Albuquerque police.

The owner of a local magic shop and a juggler, Stammer was arrested in 1999 on allegations of criminal sexual penetration of a minor, kidnapping, intimidation of a witness, battery and criminal sexual contact of a minor. Stammer was allowed to bond out before his arraignment, authorities said.

The former Albuquerque resident already had an arrest warrant for failing to appear at his arraignment. A federal arrest warrant was issued in June 2000 for Stammer for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, authorities said.

The FBI and investigators from multiple jurisdictions used investigative photos to determine that Stammer had used a fraudulent passport to enter Nepal, Fisher said. He briefly escaped prison in Katmandu but was recaptured by Nepal authorities.

Stammer had been living there since 2006 under a different name.

He is expected to face state charges.

The government actually spent money on tracking this guy down. But we can't spend money on securing our borders.

Have any of you "lets hang the scumbag" bloggers, even considered the word, "charges" ? Or, does the US system of justice not fit your means. If not,...find a better one.
