Not necessarily...

If the crook is in another county, same state, it could be simple extradition.

If the crook is across state lines, it could still be handled as an extradition,
but, slightly more complicated.

If the crook is on the other side of an international boundary, that's a whole
new ball of wax and the number of permutations of regulatory combinations
involved prevents any rational enumeration here.
