WYOMING – The U.S. District Court of Wyoming issued a federal arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie Wednesday under a Federal Grand Jury indictment that is related to Laundrie’s activities following the death of Gabrielle Petito.

Garna Mejia shared the arrest warrant via Twitter.

Violation

The violation listed is: “Use of Unauthorized Access Devices”, which officials said is related to Laundrie’s activities following the death of Petito, the statement said.

“While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr. Laundrie, the F.B.I. and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito’s homicide.” Said F.B.I. Denver Special Agent in Charge Michael Schneider.

What it Means

It appears it’s for a bank card fraud-related charge, which happened between August 30th and September 1st, Mejia said.

F.B.I Continues to Seek Information

The F.B.I. continues to seek information from anyone who used the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping area between the dates of August 27-30, who may have had contact with Ms. Petito or Mr. Laundrie, or who may have seen their vehicle.

“We urge individuals with knowledge of Mr. Laundrie’s role in this matter or his current whereabouts to contact the F.B.I. No piece of information is too small or inconsequential to support our efforts in this investigation,” Schneider said.


For photos and details, please see the F.B.I.’s Seeking Information poster for Ms. Petito; relevant information may be submitted to the F.B.I. online at tips.fbi.gov or by phone at 1-800-CALL-FBI or 303-629-7171.

People may upload photos or videos via the F.B.I.’s digital media tip line dedicated to this case fbi.gov/petito.

The F.B.I. in Denver is thanking the public for the valuable tips that have already been submitted.
