Springfield, OH – U.S. Marshal Pete Tobin is pleased to announce that early yesterday morning, the U.S. Marshals Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested Tamara Remy, age 28 and her husband, Christopher Remy, age 27.
The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) worked closely with the Springfield Police Department after Tamara and Christopher Remy were charged with raping three children over the course of several years. Tamara has a 17 count indictment and Christopher has a 28 count indictment. Several of the counts include rape, gross sexual imposition, domestic violence, intimidation of a victim, and endangering children. Through the investigation, SOFAST developed information that Tamara Remy was residing at an address on Farlow Street in Springfield. SOFAST arrived at the residence and located Tamara inside. Tamara was transported to the Clark County Jail. Two hours and 114 miles later, Dayton SOFAST tracked down and arrested Christopher Remy at a residence in Portsmouth, Ohio. It is believed that Christopher fled to the Portsmouth area to avoid arrest. Through cooperative efforts such as SOFAST, dangerous fugitives who prey on children will be brought to justice.
U.S. Marshals SOFAST is a multi-jurisdictional task force comprised of the Dayton Police Department, Springfield Police Department, Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Grandview Hospital Police Department, Miami County Sheriff’s Office, Ohio Adult Parole Authority, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, Springboro Police Department and the Wright State University Police.
The U.S. Marshals Service is the nation’s primary fugitive hunting organization and captures more federal fugitives each year than all other law enforcement agencies combined.
