ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - After 30 years on the run, a foreign national wanted on federal drug charges has been captured.

Officials from the U.S. Marshal’s Office said Monday that 68-year-old Colombian national Humberto Bonilla was arrested in New Jersey earlier this month. Also known as Humberto Reyes, Bonilla had an outstanding warrant in connection to federal charges out of Virginia.

A federal arrest warrant was issued in 1987 charging Bonilla with failing to appear on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana. An investigation for the fugitive spanned several states.

Authorities developed information earlier this year that Bonilla was possibly living in New Jersey. On July 18, marshals made contact with Bonilla, who denied his identity. Marshals fingerprinted him on the spot.
