Investigators with the Attorney General’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit have arrested a Baton Rouge fugitive wanted for the aggravated rape of a minor, announced Attorney General Buddy Caldwell.
Anthony Dreon Allen, 18, of 11926 Queens Drive was wanted by the Baker Police Department as a suspect in the aggravated rape of an 11-year-old female. The Louisiana Attorney General’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit (FAU) conducted a fugitive investigation to assist the Baker Police Department in locating Allen. With the assistance of the Baton Rouge Police Department, FAU agents arrested Allen in the 11600 block of Kingston Drive. Allen was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
If convicted as charged, Allen faces life in prison without the benefit of parole.
In 2008, Attorney General Caldwell established the Fugitive Apprehension Unit—a program created to assist local law enforcement agencies in locating and apprehending fugitives. To date, more than 700 fugitives have been captured as a result of Caldwell’s initiative.
