Douglas County man arrested in Nicaragua extradited back to Nebraska

(Douglas County, NE) -- The number one fugitive on the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Most Wanted List is back in Nebraska.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says on Tuesday, 29 year old Adam Hawhee was brought back to Douglas County by deputies. Hawhee was being held in Miami after being arrested in Nicaragua in April. Hawhee is facing two counts of Child Enticement and 26 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

In December of 2020, the DCSO received the two felony warrants for Hawhee. DCSO says initial attempts to locate Hawhee in the Omaha area were unsuccessful. The Sheriff's Office says during the investigation, it was determined that Hawhee may have fled the state and possibly the country. With assistance from the United States Marshals Service, DCSO determined that Hawhee had fled the United States to Nicaragua. Last month, Hawhee was taken into custody by Nicaraguan authorities on immigration violations and was deported back to the United States.
