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

Had no idea they did this. Actually a really good tactic if you actually have the right person Saucier is just too common of a name in S. Louisiana to not have other checks and balances.

I’d do a day or two in the can for the kind of settlement she will get.

Should bump the settlement quite a bit since it was Orleans parish jail.

I’d be suing too. How can you screw up that bad?

Any judgement against Orleans parish will go unpaid for years if at all, UNLESS she can get the suit through a federal court. Then they HAVE TO pay immediately upon judgement. She may be lucky as the feds were involved in this action it appears. If I were her I would definately get my lawyer to see who reported her as not returning a rental vehicle and sue everyone up the line.

Its not “common knowledge” which is why it’s so effective. People think, “I know I’ve got a warrant, but I’m staying at a friends house and I just can’t get pulled over... I’m gonna go on a cruise!”

I mean you go through customs and need a passport for a cruise, doesn’t seem that crazy to me that if you have a warrant you probably shouldn’t go on a cruise.

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


Unless she was pulled over or something like that, they normally don't actively search for people unless it's for something serious. She was dinged when she came back into the country. If she hadn't taken the cruise, it might've been a long time before anything happened.

Just curious, but what range are we looking at for a settlement in a situation of mistaken detainment?

My question is how do you find out if you have a warrant out for you. I have never been in trouble but would be interested to know if there was a warrant for someone with the same name or an unpaid ticket that was forgot about.

Authorities, though, had the wrong person. The detective who filed the warrant logged the birth date of a different Sara Saucier, rather than that of the suspect.


Did Officer mistype a DOB that just by chance matched someone with same name? or was officer lazy and picked first name that came up in a search even if outside parish?

It was a car rental issue. I would think a DL# or some other type of ID# would have been known and included on warrant (or easily looked up if person disputes being person in warrant).

Is the correct Sara still a fugitive?

If returned Does car rental place have a duty to update sheriff if they accept return of vehicle after filling?

In Texas you can go to a county run website and see active warrants or search by name to show any with matching name. I am not sure about Louisiana. Also, Not sure what info is included to distinguish between similar names (probably DOB but at least in EBR that may not be input accurately).

Also seems like if added checks and balances put in place in 2018 EBR would have made it back to 2017 in their audits.

The sheriff’s office added checks and balances to ensure the accuracy of its filings in 2018, roughly a year after it drafted the Saucier warrant. An office spokeswoman said the agency continues to audit active warrants.

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

If she was returning from her honeymoon and spent 36 hrs in jail why hadn’t her SO bailed her out. Not a good start for that marriage.

Twice I have been nearly arrested due to having the same name as a guy they were looking for. Even though the DL # and address were different. Both times I asked them to compare SS numbers and was released.

A third time a cop hunted me down thinking I was this guy again but fortunately he knew what the guy looked like so didn't hassle me too much. Did ask for my DL and shook his head when he looked at it. Apparently he has the same middle initial as well.
