FBI agents and the U.S. Marshal Service are hunting a fugitive with “close ties with domestic extremists” they believe is still on Oahu, possibly driving a silver Honda Pilot.
Jennifer Ann McTigue — formerly Jennifer Lowe — grew up in East Honolulu and was last seen near Kahala Mall on June 30. There is no record of her leaving Oahu on a commercial flight.
“All indications are that she is hiding on Oahu, but she has close ties with domestic extremists with the Sovereign Citizens Movement — so anything is possible,” FBI spokesman Tom Simon said in a news release.
Simon told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the Sovereign Citizens Movement “is a loosely knit network of people who believe the laws of the U.S. do not apply to them. It has nothing to do with Hawaiian sovereignty.”
In 2014, McTigue, 48, was indicted by a federal grand jury on criminal charges relating to an alleged $3 million scheme to defraud new homeowners, title companies and banks in a complex real estate scheme.
She had been out on bond awaiting a federal trial scheduled for July 20.
McTigue drives a 2004 silver Honda Pilot with Hawaii license plates NGP-809. Her last known address was an apartment at 500 University Ave.
She is described as Caucasian, 5-feet, 5-inches, 155 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She is also a fitness enthusiast and outrigger canoe paddler.
