KHQ EXCLUSIVE: Spokane Sex Offender Wanted Since 1983 ARRESTED By US Marshals On UNR Campus

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: The United States Marshals Service have arrested Steven M. James (AKA Steven Mell), a fugitive wanted in Spokane on an outstanding probation warrant issued in 1983. James, 59, was sentenced to probation as the result of a 1983 conviction for attempted indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14.

The investigation to locate Steven M. James led Deputy U.S. Marshals to the University of Nevada Reno (UNR) where he was found to be a full-time student. James was arrested on campus Tuesday afternoon by Deputy U.S. Marshals and Officers from UNR Police Services as he arrived for class.He was booked into the Washoe County Jail awaiting extradition to Washington.

Christopher Hoye, the U.S. Marshal for the District of Nevada, stated, "This arrest showcases how cooperation between federal and local law enforcement is paramount in locating fugitives fleeing from justice, in this case, for nearly 28 years."

The Nevada FIST is a permanent task force which brings together the resources and expertise of state, local and federal agencies in a coordinated effort to arrest dangerous fugitives and pursue sexual offenders anywhere they are located. In essence, Nevada FIST is a law enforcement "force multiplier".

Nevada FIST, led by the U.S. Marshals Service, is a partnership comprised of investigators from the Washoe County Sheriff's Office, the Nevada Department of Public Safety (Parole and Probation), the Sparks Police Department, and the Reno Police Department.
