Newsline: US Embassy seeks fugitive in Trinidad

United States law enforcement is on the hunt for a violent fugitive believed to be hiding in Trinidad and Tobago. The man who has been identified by the US Embassy in Port of Spain as Sean Lopes, 46, is believed to be hiding in this country, the Embassy said in a press statement which showed three photographs of Lopes, who is described as a violent fugitive. Lopes was sentenced to 15 years in jail on charges of kidnapping and attempting to murder his ex-girlfriend who is the niece of a US Federal Judge. In 2008, Interpol in Guyana issued a wanted bulletin for Lopes who is said to have Guyanese and Dutch nationality for alleged kidnapping and other crimes involving the use of weapons and explosives. In 2006, Lopes, including eight other men and one woman were labelled by the New York Police Department as the city’s most wanted fugitives. A reward is being offered for information leading to Lopes’ capture, the US Embassy said.
