Convicted man on loose for five years is detained

A man who has been on the loose since 2004 came into investigators’ hands Tuesday. The arrests took place in Cariari de Pococí without incident.

The fugitive was identified as Orlando Reyes González, who was found guilty in 2004 of distributing pornography and corruption. Sept. 12, 2005, the Sala III of the Corte Suprema de Justicia confirmed the sentence but Reyes was not around to begin serving a four-year term, said agents.

The arrest came just one month before the sentence would have been voided by the lapse of time, said agents. They credited close work with prosecutors for leading to the arrest.
