U.S. Customs and Border Protection field operations officers apprehended a man wanted in Florida on Thursday at the Cyril E. King Airport.

Gregory Fahie, 40, a U.S. citizen, presented himself for inspection on St. Thomas attempting to travel to Puerto Rico. CBP inspection revealed that Fahie is the subject of a felony warrant.

According to a news release from the CBP, Fahie is wanted by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in Tampa, Florida for a sex offender registration violation.

“We are proud of our officers’ continuing vigilance and their commitment to keeping communities safe throughout the United States,” USVI Area Port Director Louis Harrigan said.
