The U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested a Milton man March 11, who was wanted in Michigan on a 1999 warrant that was issued 11 years after the alleged crime took place. U.S. Marshals in Michigan were able to determine that 54-year-old James Curtis White, who is wanted by the Michigan State Police for Criminal Sexual Conduct on a Victim less than 13 years of age, was most likely living in Santa Rosa County.
The Marshals Task Force in Pensacola confirmed that White was living in a home on the 3200 Block of Electra Drive in the Avalon Beach area of Milton. U.S. Marshals and Task Force Officers from Santa Rosa and Walton counties arrested White without incident at his home. Although the alleged misconduct took place over a period believed to be 5 months in 1988 in Lansing, MI, the warrant wasn’t issued until 1999. In addition, extradition was limited and only recently was it changed broadening the scope to include Florida. White will remain in custody in Santa Rosa County until his extradition to Michigan.
