A man accused of using illegal drugs to entice underage girls into sex is behind bars in Virginia after 12 years on the run.
Wesley Thomason, 39, was caught by Mexican authorities in Lake Chapala, a resort community near Guadalajara, WTTG-TV reported.
Fairfax County Police Officer Bud Walker said Thomason was videotaping his encounters with minors without their knowledge. He was arrested in 2000, when he was 27, on sex crime charges.
He was released from jail pending his trial, and he took the opportunity to flee the U.S.
The U.S. Marshals Service believed he might have gone to Mexico, and shared information on him with Mexican authorities, who arrested him last month, according to Walker.
He was extradited to Los Angeles, and then taken back to Fairfax County Jail, where he was held before he fled the country.
Now cops are asking any victims he may have assaulted in Mexico to come forward.
He has not yet been charged as a fugitive, according to WTTG.
