Fugitive turns himself in after profile in Forum

FARGO – The U.S. Marshals Service says a 26-year-old Fargo man voluntarily surrendered at the Cass County Courthouse Tuesday after he was featured in The Forum’s “Fugitive Focus.”

Korey Michael Bueng was wanted by Cass County authorities on two charges in connection with a domestic violence incident, in which he prevented his girlfriend from calling 911.

The exposure from being profiled in Monday’s Forum led Bueng to self-surrender, according to authorities.

The U.S. Marshals Service also received “numerous tips” from Forum readers as to Bueng’s whereabouts.

“Fugitive Focus” publishes weekly in The Forum and features suspected criminals wanted by the Marshals Services’ High Plains Fugitive Task Force.

Since March, authorities have arrested or cleared the warrants of more than 75 percent of the individuals featured in “Fugitive Focus.”
