Riley County Fugitive Busted In Arizona

KSAL StaffMarch 5, 2015

A Kansas man wanted for alleged sexual exploitation of a child has been arrested in northern Arizona.

The U.S. Marshals Service announced Thursday that 48-year-old John Thomas was taken into custody after leaving a Chino Valley home in a vehicle.

Federal authorities say Thomas had dramatically changed his appearance but still was identified and arrested without incident.

He was booked into the Yavapai County Jail, where he will be held pending extradition back to Riley County in Kansas.

Riley County police say Thomas allegedly was in possession of numerous images of child pornography and a warrant was issued for his arrest in February.

Authorities say information was developed recently that Thomas was most likely residing in Arizona and Chino Valley police assisted the Marshals Service in the arrest.
