A federal fugitive who spent 10 years on the run after being indicted for cocaine distribution was arrested Monday in a Seattle suburb.
Salvador Vasquez-Vasquez, 65, was arrested in Kent after U.S. marshals learned he had assumed a new identity and was living with family members. He was arrested without incident as he left his home.
Vasquez-Vasquez had been a fugitive since 2003, when he was indicted in Oregon in a multi-defendant case for conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute cocaine. He is awaiting extradition to Oregon.
