Daniel Briley and Dean Retsinas had both pretty much wrapped up their debt to society. both were scheduled to be released this spring, both were winding up their sentences at local half-way houses. Now, both are in trouble again.
Deputy U.S. Marshall Richard Tracy says, “"In both cases both individuals are wanted potentially for new offenses."
28 year old Daniel Ray Briley and 42 year old Dean Peter Retsinas don't know each other, though once again, each finds himself on the wrong side of the law.
"We believe that both of these individuals after fleeing the halfway houses, do remain in the Tucson area and I do believe there is a potential for both of them to re-offend," says Tracey.
It's unclear what he was doing, exactly, though Retsinas was apparently up to no good, when he showed up at his mother's house on Indian Wells Road.
The good news, the unexpected visit resulted in the arrest of the convicted bank robber, though authorities did have to use a taser to bring him in.
"Mr. Retsinas has a prior arrest for a weapons violation,” says Tracy. “And he is a martial arts expert. To that extent he may pose a danger to the community if confronted by law enforcement."
As for the other escaped fugitive, Daniel Briley is still at large. He was completing a 70 month sentence for a cocaine conviction but was also wanted for questioning for allegedly possessing counterfeit money.
Like Retsinas, Briley has known ties to Tucson and is likely laying low somewhere in the area today.
If you have any information about Daniel Ray Briley you're asked to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME. The Pima County Attorney's anonymous tip line.
A reward of up to $1,000 will go to the person whose tip leads to an arrest.
As for Retsinas, he’s been handed over to federal authorities and now faces felony escape charges on top of any other pending sanctions.
Same goes for Briley, as soon as authorities are able to bring him in.
