You just never know who lives next door to you!  I received a press release from the Cloquet Police Department that said a fugitive who has been living in Cloquet was arrested near his home onn Pinehurst Park Drive.  Here's the details:


On August 20, 2014, the Andrew County (Missouri) Sheriff’s Office contacted the Cloquet Police Department to say they believed a fugitive from their state may currently be in the city of Cloquet.  James Michael Swett, was wanted in Missouri for 50 felony charges.

  • 14 counts of Statutory Sodomy - 1st degree
  • 14 counts of Child Molestation
  • 14 counts of Forcible Sodomy
  • 3 counts of Sex Abuse
  • 5 counts of Sodomy

Acting on information discovered during the investigation, detectives and officers identified an address where the suspect may possibly be residing. Shortly after 8 AM on August 21, 2014, Detective Berg located Swett walking near the address, which is close to Pinehurst Park.

Swett was taken into custody for his outstanding warrants without incident and was transported to the Carlton County Jail where he is being held pending extradition back to Andrew County, Missouri.
