The U.S. Marshals Service announced on Wednesday the arrest in Belize of a Montana man wanted for a parole violation.

In cooperation with the U.S. Marshals Montana Violent Offender Task Force and the Diplomatic Security Services, the Belize Police Department arrested Michael Patrick McNulty, 48, on a $100,000 warrant issued by the state of Montana in September 2009.

Belize is a small Central American nation that borders Mexico and Guatemala and is bordered to the west by the Caribbean Sea.

McNulty received a suspended 10-year sentence out of Missoula County in May 2007 on three counts of issuing a bad check and a pair of felony thefts from 2005, according to the Montana Department of Corrections.

He was also sentenced in 2007 to 36 and 60 months, respectively, for probation violations in Flathead County stemming from theft and issuing a bad check convictions in 2004.

The Corrections Department asked for the task force’s help finding McNulty in September. They subsequently learned he may be in Belize, according to a news release.

Working with U.S. federal officials Belizean law enforcement arrested McNulty without incident either late last week or early this week, said Rod Ostermiller, chief deputy U.S. Marshal in Montana.

McNulty was deported and is being held in the Harris County jail in Texas while awaiting extradition back to Montana.
