Greensboro, NC – On January 15, 2015 at 5:30 PM, Clas Christian Nyback, a 49 year old, White Male, was arrested by investigators with the U.S. Marshals Joint Fugitive Task Force (JFTF) and the Greensboro Police Department. Nyback was wanted out of Palm Beach County, Florida for Failure to Appear on 10 counts of Possess, Control, or Intentionally View Sexual Performance by a Child.
On January 8, 2015, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) In-House Arrest Program requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force (FRTF) in locating Nyback. Nyback was placed on house arrest under court order pending his sentencing hearing that was scheduled for January 9, 2015. The FRTF received information that the PBSO House Arrest Unit received a tamper alert from Nyback’s ankle monitor. Detectives quickly made contact at Nyback’s residence and discovered he had fled the area.
On January 14, 2015, the JFTF joined the investigation and narrowed their search to Greensboro area motels. Following numerous interviews and surveillance, Nyback was arrested at the Motel 6 located at 605 S. Regional Road in Greensboro. Initially, Nyback provided officers with a false name, but was recognized by members of the JFTF through photos. Nyback later admitted his identity to the officers. Nyback is currently pending extradition to Florida to face his charges.
