Child pornography suspect arrested in Parker

Fugitive from West Virginia apprehended after seven-year search

Posted

On Sept. 15, Douglas County Sheriff's detectives and Parker Police Department officers apprehended a fugitive from West Virginia wanted since 2010 on child pornography charges, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.

The suspect, Jamie Castle, 39, was arrested without incident in Parker, according to Parker Police Public Information Officer Josh Hans.

Castle faced five felony warrants and one indictment for 153 counts of child pornography after law enforcement in West Virginia searched his home in 2010. Castle was not arrested at that time and fled the state to avoid prosecution.

“We were very grateful to play our part and arrest this suspect that has been eluding law enforcement for seven years,” said Parker Police Department Deputy Chief Jim Tsurapas. “Justice can be served.”

The Buchanan County Sheriff's Office in West Virginia contacted the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, believing Castle was living in the 8000 block of Prairie Clover Way in Parker. Follow-up by the FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Fugitive Task Force returned a possible address where the suspect was living.

Officers in Parker, aided by a detective from the sheriff's office, made the arrest, according to Hans.

“Through collaboration of several different agencies, this suspect has been arrested and will be processed through the criminal justice system,” Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said. “Our children and those in many other jurisdictions will be safer.”

Castle waived extradition and is being held without bond at the Douglas County jail.
