Feds escort San Francisco robbery suspect back to city from Philippines 

The feds escorted a San Francisco robbery suspect living in the Philippines back to The City on Sunday.

Federal agents said they located the fugitive in the Zambales region of the Philippines.

The Superior Court of San Francisco issued warrants for Vincent Christopher Huergas’ arrest on April 7 on two counts of robbery. He allegedly left the U.S. on Feb. 23.

In a “complex” investigation involving the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service, the U.S. Embassy in Manila, and the Philippine Bureau of Immigration, Huergas was found living in the town of Candeleria, a five-hour drive from Manila.
 
He was arrested May 26, federal officials said. DSS special agents and Philippine immigration law enforcement officers escorted Huergas on a commercial aircraft to San Francisco, where he was formally arrested by San Francisco Police Department on Sunday.
 
Last year, DSS said it assisted in the resolution of 188 international fugitive cases from over 30 different countries.
