Ponchatoula woman arrested returning home from honeymoon... by mistake
News article
quote:

A Ponchatoula woman is enjoying her freedom, after a case of mistaken identity led her to leave her honeymoon in handcuffs.

quote:

Sara Saucier was on a Carnival cruise ship returning to New Orleans from Cozumel when U.S. customs agents pounded on her door at 6:40 a.m. Monday. The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office filed an arrest warrant in November 2017, claiming Saucier did not return a leased vehicle.

quote:

The mistake went unnoticed for 36 hours, as Saucier sat in the Orleans Parish Jail. “I thought they would realize the mistake, and they would let me go,” Saucier said in an interview Thursday. “At one point when no one was listening to what I was saying, about me being innocent, I was like, oh my gosh, I’m really going to be in here for a while.”

quote:

Deputies realized the confusion Tuesday, as they relocated Saucier into their jail. They released her that afternoon.

quote:

I am thankful that they have apologized,” Saucier said. “Unfortunately that doesn’t take care of everything that happened while I was there. I’m not saying it’s their fault at all, but somebody made a big mistake.” Saucier added that she has hired an attorney to consider further action.


The detective who filed the warrant retired in 2019. Seems funny to me that the warrant was filed in 2017 and waited until 2020 to storm a cruise ship and make an arrest.

My guess is that standard protocol for screening ships returning from a cruise is a warrant sweep. Because it isn’t like they can go anywhere until they clear customs.

re: Ponchatoula woman arrested returning home from honeymoon... by mistake
I got detained for a little while coming back from my honeymoon. My new wife at the time had been mugged in the French Quarter a few years prior, and her family filed a missing person report with the police when they couldn't get in touch with her for a couple of days until she got a new cell phone. Supposedly the missing person report was canceled with the police, but it showed back up through Interpol when we were coming through customs and the agents thought I was a human trafficker. I want to know how the hell she got a passport a few months prior, but then they hassle me when we're coming back into the states.

Saucier said she passed time singing worship music and speaking with others detained.

“I prayed and said, if they do have to take me to prison, that I would be able to be used through His glory for being there,” she said.



This woman is crazy

Well that's gotta be one of the worst ways you can end a honeymoon.

The way cruise ships work is that each passenger’s name/passport is cross-referenced with outstanding warrants and when the ship returns, it is boarded by CBP to enforce... basically, cruises act as traps for criminals because they can’t disembark before they’re captured. I mean, it’s not like the movies/TV where they track cell phones/credit cards of criminals... they know where they are and they’re trapped there until they are captured.

It’s all very easy from the LEO’s perspective and a standard practice for cruises.

Moral of the story? If you’ve got warrants, don’t go on vacation.

eta: This woman got screwed by lack of professionalism and I hope she gets paiddddd

Oh okay what makes sense at least as far as the seemingly random location.
