Timothy Caskey to be extradited from Matamoros.
The FBI and United States Marshals announced on Monday that Timothy Caskey has been arrested without incident at a bank in Matamoros, Mexico. His estranged wife, who has been missing since July 14, was also found.
Mexican State Police officials made the arrest at about 2 p.m. CDT, and Caskey is now awaiting extradition to the United States. His initial appearance in San Antonio federal court has not yet been scheduled.
Caskey had been sought on federal and state kidnapping warrants — as well as a state false imprisonment charge and a parole violation warrant issued by the Minnesota Department of Corrections that stemmed from a July 14 incident when Caskey was accused of kidnapping his estranged wife, Roberta Lynn Caskey.
Timothy Caskey is also a person of interest in a July 15 bank robbery in Ottowa, Kan., and in the theft of a pickup truck from a used car lot in New Braunfels, Texas, on July 16.
The Caskeys were tracked to the town of Matamoros by U.S. marshals and FBI agents who sought and received the help of Mexican State Police.
Police say Roberta Lynn Caskey will return to Minnesota in the near future, and appeared distraught when she was recovered by Mexican authorities, but no further information about her sate of health was released.
