ST. THOMAS — On Sunday, August 13, Cyril E. King Airport became the site of a significant arrest. Allen Eugene Hall, a 29-year-old individual evading law enforcement in Texas, was detained by authorities here.
This capture was made possible by the collaborative work of the Criminal Investigation Bureau and the Customs Border Patrol (CBP). It was during the initial detainment by CBP that a thorough NCIC background check was conducted. This check brought to light the pressing fact: Hall was on the run due to pending warrants in Texas. These warrants were connected to two serious allegations of sexual assault.
Immediately after these findings, procedures were initiated. Hall was swiftly arrested, thoroughly booked, and processed by the relevant authorities. Taking the severity of his alleged crimes into account, the decision was made not to set a bail amount for Hall. This underscores the gravity of the charges he’s facing and the dedication of local enforcement to uphold justice.
