Former Neo-Nazi Leader Arrested in Mexico
Former neo-Nazi leader William A. White was arrested by U.S. and Mexican authorities in Mexico on Friday afternoon after nearly a month on the lam, officials said.
White, 35, was wanted on a federal warrant for violating his supervised release after serving 2½ years in prison for making threats.
The fugitive was arrested in the resort town of Playa del Carmen about 3 p.m., said U.S. Marshals Service Chief Deputy Brad Sellers.
Sellers said in a news release that White “had apparently fled the country” after the May 11 warrant was issued for him.
Reached by phone Friday, Sellers declined to specify how investigators tracked White to Mexico.
