U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it arrested four fugitives at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia last week, including one person from Silver Spring.

Luis Mario Mazariego Hernandez, 39, of Silver Spring arrived at the airport on July 8 from El Salvador.

Customs and Border Protection said in a news release that Hernandez was wanted by the Alexandria (Va.) Police Department on charges of forgery of sales invoices and identity theft.

The three other wanted people stopped last week were a Virginia Beach resident leaving for Switzerland; a Reston, Va., resident arriving from Dubai; and an Orlando, Fla., resident arriving from El Salvador.

Customs and Border Protection works with investigating jurisdictions, verifies identities and turns fugitives over to the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police, the news release said.
