Sheriff's deputies from Riverside County, California, have captured a white supremacist fugitive from Utah, 24-year-old Curtis Michael Allgier. Allgier was the Utah Department of Corrections' most wanted escaped parolee.
According to authorities, Allgier is a white supremacist who has associated with members of various Utah-based racist prison gangs, including Soldiers of the Aryan Culture, Silent Aryan Warriors, and 4th Reich. He also allegedly has connections to racist skinheads in the Ogden, Utah, area. Allgier is heavily tattooed, including several white supremacist tattoos, which made him readily identifiable.
Parole officials in Utah declared Allgier a fugitive after he failed to report to parole officers in June and issued a warrant for his arrest on June 21, 2004. Allgier made his way to California, where Riverside authorities received a tip on July 5, 2004, that he was in their jurisdiction.
After first eluding officers, Riverside sheriff's deputies caught Allgier the next day. He is now charged with escape from official custody, burglary, and forgery, and will be extradited to Utah.
