US Marshals, NCIS capture fugitive Marine

by Nick Delgado

Guam - A U.S. Marine was picked up by federal authorities this afternoon, as he is wanted in the state of Texas. U.S. Marshal's drew their weapons just outside Wendy's in Harmon this afternoon, securing a man who has been wanted in Texas for the last six months.

Lance Corporal George Christopher Aragon, who is on Guam participating in the Marine Corps' Island Fury exercise, was picked up as there is a pending sexual assault charge against him in the Lone Star State. According to the Marines' public affairs officer, Lieutenant Colonel Aisha Bakkar, Aragon is with the Marine Aircraft Group 12 Headquarter, based out of Iwakuni, Japan.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and U.S. Marshals notified MG-12 of the arrest warrant. Bakkar says the unit facilitated handing over Aragon to the feds, but it wasn't done lightly. Federal agents pointed their weapons and frisked Aragon in the parking lot of the restaurant before taking him into custody. Aragon has been in the Marines for the past 16 months.

Bakkar says the allegations are from before he enlisted. She says while these are only allegations, the Marines are held to the highest standards, adding that all Marines are held accountable for their actions.

The U.S. Marshals Service late this afternoon confirmed that Aragon is wanted in Harris County, Houston, for felony continued sex and child abuse. The feds also arrested Vernon Dulie and Jesse Castro  Babauta this week, as the pair failed to register as sex offenders.
