Jesse P. Sawyer
PINELLAS PARK – Pinellas Park police arrested a New York man Friday afternoon after releasing him the night before.

Police detained Jesse P. Sawyer, 25, of Troy, who was wanted by the FBI on charges of production of child pornography, for about an hour Thursday night, and then let him go after confirmation procedures failed.

Just before 11 p.m. March 27, Pinellas Park police received word from the Troy, New York Police Department that Sawyer was at 8900 U.S. 19. They were told that an active warrant was out for Sawyer’s arrest.

Pinellas Park police went to the location and made contact with Sawyer, “who was cooperative with our investigation,” according to a press release. Police found out that there was a warrant in the system for Sawyer and they initiated confirmation procedures with the FBI.

“We did not receive a response from the FBI in reference to this request so telephone contact was established,” the press release said. “The person we spoke to at the FBI could not confirm the warrant and was making phone calls to an unidentified agent to confirm this.”

An hour passed from the time Pinellas Park PD made contact with Sawyer and officers still were unable to confirm the warrant. A decision was made to release him.

A short while later, police received confirmation of the warrant. They returned to the area, but he was gone. Officers along with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s helicopter, Pinellas Park K-9 teams searched for him but couldn’t find him.
