On August 17, 2021, officers of the General Department of Criminal Police of Armenia—in cooperation with the Interpol National Central Bureau for Armenia, the US Embassy in Armenia, and the Artashat city police department—had found a 43-year-old US citizen in Jrashen village and brought him to the Artashat Police Department.

The police inform Armenian News-NEWS.am that this man was internationally wanted under the criminal code of the US state of Pennsylvania—and for child sexual abuse.

The pretrial measure: arrest.

This US national was detained and then taken into custody.

And in collaboration with the Armenian Police, the Prosecutor General's Office, the representatives of a number of US law enforcement agencies, and the US Embassy in Armenia, this wanted person was extradited from Armenia to the US on Monday.
