Florida Fugitive Arrested in Mexico After 37 Years

Sunday, 11 Jan 2015 01:47 PM

A former South Florida man has been arrested in Mexico 37 years after failing to surrender for a 10-month prison sentence.

Miami U.S. Attorney's officials say Robert Anton Woodring was indicted in 1984 for failing to surrender in 1977 to start his sentence for removing a yacht so that authorities couldn't seize it. Woodring had also been sentenced in a related case to seven years in prison after a jury found him guilty of mail fraud and conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

U.S. Marshals apprehended Woodring in Guadalajara, Mexico, last month. Woodring agreed to be transported to Miami for further proceedings and is set to be arraigned Wednesday.
