LAUDERDALE LAKES, Florida (AP) -- A 60-year-old convict has been captured in southern United States after more than three decades on the run.
The U.S. Marshals Service said in a news release that Willie Lee Austin was serving a 15-year sentence for armed robbery before he escaped from prison in 1981.
Officials say investigators recently looked into the case and found a possible alias identity for Austin. They found an address in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, and say they took Austin into custody without incident on Wednesday.
