CBP Officers at Fort Lauderdale Help Capture Man Wanted for Murder

On April 10, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers from Office of Field Operations at Fort Lauderdale International Airport took a man into custody to face murder charges in Nashville.

Brandon Swaby, a 20-year-old Jamaican citizen, was attempting to fly to Jamaica via Spirit Airways, and was a person of interest after an April 5 fatal shooting near Nashville International Airport. After coordination between Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, U.S. Secret Service and CBP, Swaby was found to have an outbound ticket at Fort Lauderdale International, where CBP officers located and arrested him prior to boarding without incident. Swaby had entered the U.S. in 2020 with a non-immigrant visa and had overstayed his allotted time. 

 “We continue to work closely with all law enforcement partners to ensure wanted criminals face justice,” said Larry Allen, CBP Port Director for Port of Nashville, who assisted the effort. “Our work is vital to protecting the homeland and officers consistently do an outstanding job of taking people off the street that may pose a concern to any community.”
