PHOENIX (AP) - A Jamaican man wanted in an Oklahoma drug-trafficking case in 2010 is in custody in Arizona.

U.S. Marshals Service officials announced Wednesday that 33-year-old Stefan Thomas was arrested in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa on Monday.

They say Thomas had about $95,000 in cash in his Mesa apartment along with materials used to package drugs for distribution.

He’s now in a Phoenix jail awaiting extradition to Oklahoma. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer yet.

Federal authorities say they received information that Thomas had returned to Arizona on his regular route from New York to move drugs.

Thomas was arrested in December 2010 for allegedly transporting 25 pounds of drugs along an interstate near Oklahoma City.

He was released on bond, but failed to appear in court in January 2014.
