While conducting surveillance for wanted individuals on August 28th, Chief Ranger Didier Carod and Law Enforcement Specialist Wayne Rybeck arrested two individuals in Miami-Dade County who had arrest warrants out on them. The first had fines exceeding $1,000; the second had been convicted of poaching. A federal judge had issued arrest warrants for both of them. Biscayne has had an active arrest warrant program since early 2009. Since then, rangers have arrested 11 suspects in various cities within Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Three others have been arrested by local agencies after absconding from the park’s warrant/arrest team. They have been turned over to the rangers and taken to a federal detention center. Biscayne has developed a detailed warrant standard operating procedure and has developed examples of arrest plans. Today, Biscayne has only two active arrest warrants not served yet out of dozens issued since January of 2009. The park worked closely with the assistant United States attorney's office and federal judges when putting this program together.
