3D Gun Leader Flees To Taiwan, Cops Seek Extradition

3D Gun Leader Flees To Taiwan, Cops Seek Extradition

Wilson flew to Taipei, Tawan after allegedly being told by a friend of the victim that she had spoken to police and he was being investigated for sex with a minor.

The bureau had earlier confirmed that Wilson was in Taiwan after arriving on the island earlier this month. Because his United States passport was later annulled, the agency's statement said, he "no longer has the legal status to stay in Taiwan".

In his August ruling, Judge Robert S. Lasnik of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington granted a preliminary injunction on the blueprints with the intention of mitigating risks to the public, arguing that the lawyers who had filed suit against Wilson "have a legitimate fear that adding undetectable and untraceable guns to the arsenal of weaponry already available will likely increase the threat of gun violence they and their people experience". Liberty Times notes Wilson did not have any contraband on him at the time of the arrest, and he appeared calm when approached by authorities.

Cody Wilson, founder of the Austin-based, 3D-printed gun design firm Defense Distributed, has been arrested in Taiwan.

North Carolina governor Roy Cooper says the state is still tallying its storm damage, but says it will be in the billions . It has been a little more than a year since Hurricane Harvey dumped trillions of gallons of water on Texas and the U.S.

While Taiwan has no formal extradition treaty with the USA, and Wilson was not said to have been doing anything directly criminal in Taiwan, the press there reports that he was arrested without incident because the US had revoked his passport, making his mere presence in Taiwan illegal. Police issued a warrant for his arrest following a sexual assault charge with a child, a second-degree felony that Officer said could put him behind bars for up to 20 years.

The alleged victim, who has not been named, said that she had been paid $500 to have sex with the man in a hotel and that she had met the man, who used the name 'Sanjuro, ' through the website SugarDaddyMeet.com, CBS Austin reported.

It is not clear why he went to Thailand specifically, Officer said. He made national headlines last month when he announced plans to publish gun blueprints on Defense Distributed's website. The two exchanged cell phone numbers and began texting and exchanging explicit photos, the affidavit said. Police said they were able to corroborate the teen's claims through interviews and surveillance footage.

The license plate on the vehicle that "Sanjuro" drove matched one that was registered to Defense Distributed as well, according to KVUE.
