Fugitive for 40 Years Caught in Iowa

Posted: Updated:

 

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a man being held in Waterloo is a fugitive of more than 40 years from North Carolina.
The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/1kA7STj ) the man was arrested after the Iowa Transportation Department's facial recognition system flagged his driver's license photo. Authorities say they found information in his residence that identified him as 68-year-old Ronald Dwaine Carnes.
Records say Carnes was convicted of robbery in the Winston-Salem, N.C., area in November 1970 and sentenced to 20 years. He escaped a correctional center in Huntersville, N.C., in August 1973.
The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office says Carnes was charged Monday with committing fraudulent practices, possession of weapons by a felon and possession of a fictitious license. Records do not list an attorney.
North Carolina officials say they're working to extradite Carnes.
