Pennsylvania fugitive thought to be in isthmus

Harold Eugene Smith

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation said its agents
think a Pennsylvania man who skipped out on a child sex charge may be in Costa Rica.

They identified the man as Harold Eugene Smith, 60, of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. He faces charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution – rape of a child, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, incest and corruption of minors.

The case stems from a 2010 local investigation by police. Smith is accused of violating a girl when she was 12 and 13 years in a continuing crime.

The FBI announcement said that he skipped bail at the end of 2010. The FBI agents are involved because he was charged last October  with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, a federal crime.

The FBI did not explain why they believe Smith might be in Central America.
