U.S. Marshals in Mississippi arrested on Monday a man who fled Montana after facing child pornography charges, stole a man’s identity and was on the run for nearly five months.
According to a press release from Montana’s Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal, Rod Ostermiller, Northern District of Mississippi deputies found Glenn Scott in Tupelo, Miss.
In January, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Scott in Montana on a warrant charging him with receiving and possessing child pornography. He released from custody a short time later and placed on supervised release.
On June 6, Ostermiller said, Scott removed an electronic monitoring device and left the state. He was constantly on the move and switched vehicles often. He also is believed to have stolen the identity of a man named Don Bradley Crenshaw, Ostermiller said.
U.S. Marshal’s deputies from Montana, Mississippi and Florida worked together for several months to track Scott down.
Scott remains in custody in Mississippi and will appear before a federal magistrate judge there before he is returned to Montana.
Marshal’s deputies in Billings also arrested on Monday a registered violent and sexual offender on suspicion of probation violation.
Ostermiller said his office received a warrant for the arrest of Larry Lee Schleinger, 44, last week. They learned he was staying at an apartment on the 300 block of South 35th Street and found him hiding in a closet.
Schleinger was arrest with out incident and booked into the Yellowstone County Detention Facility.
He is on probation for a February felony drug possession conviction out of Yellowstone County. In 1984, Schleinger was convicted of sexual intercourse without consent and of felony aggravated assault in 1990 and 1995.
