On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, FBI Agents in Lincoln, Nebraska, arrested fugitive Aaron Barnes at a motel near the airport in Lincoln. The arrest was without incident.
The FBI is still searching for a second fugitive, Kamau Kambui Leland Curnal, in this sex trafficking case. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with general information or tips about Curnal’s location is asked to call the FBI office in his or her area. In Portland, the number is (503) 224-4181. In Seattle, the number is (206) 622-0460.
Aaron M. Barnes, age 33, and Kamau Curnal, age 28, as part of a sex trafficking investigation. A federal grand jury in Oregon has charged both men with one count of sex trafficking of a child and one count of transportation of a minor of purposes of prostitution. The indictment alleges that the men drove a minor victim from Portland to Seattle as part of a trafficking operation. Although the charges stem from alleged criminal activity in Oregon, the men are both believed to have extensive ties to Seattle and may be living in that area.
