A fugitive wanted on charges related to a DUI resulting in injury was found in Michigan and transported back to El Dorado County.

In 2009, Brandi Morgan Thomas was convicted of a 2008 DUI incident where she swerved into the bicycle lane on El Dorado Hills Boulevard, hitting two female cyclists and causing “life-changing major injuries,” a press release stated. She was sentenced to a seven-year prison sentence that was suspended in favor of a five-year period of formal probation, including an “obey all laws” clause.

Thomas was arrested in August 2011 on charges, including burglary, forgery and conspiracy to commit a crime. She fled the county and, despite attempts to locate her, eluded capture.

Using Masterqueue technology from the El Dorado Hills-based Intellaegis, district attorney investigators were able to track her to Florida and Tennessee, with an endpoint in Michigan.

Investigators, with assistance from Michigan state police, located Thomas and arrested her. She was extradited to El Dorado County, where she is being held on $425,000 bail.
