N-DEx Helps Sheriff’s Office Locate Two Felons
In late 2017, the terminal agency coordinator (TAC) with the Troup County Sheriff’s Office (TCSO) in Georgia searched a large batch of warrants through the FBI’s National Data Exchange (N-DEx) System. The batch search yielded more than 200 hits, including:
One subject with a felony theft charge was wanted for failure to appear. A record from the Auburn Police Department (APD) in Alabama showed a previously unknown address for the subject, so the TAC sent an apprehension request to the APD.
The second subject was wanted by the TCSO for felony shoplifting. The TAC discovered that this subject was incarcerated by the Kansas Department of Corrections for a sex offense with a release date of 2030. Because of the extended incarceration time, the TAC cleared the warrant from the TCSO warrant list.
