Authorities: Iowa suspect is longtime fugitive

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a man being held in Waterloo is a fugitive of more than 40 years from North Carolina.

The man was arrested after the Iowa Transportation Department's facial recognition system flagged his driver's license photo. Authorities say they found information in his residence that identified him as 68-year-old Ronald Dwaine Carnes.

Records say Carnes was convicted of robbery in the Winston-Salem, N.C., area in November 1970 and sentenced to 20 years. He escaped a correctional center in Huntersville, N.C., in August 1973.

The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office says Carnes was charged Monday with committing fraudulent practices, possession of weapons by a felon and possession of a fictitious license. Records do not list an attorney.

North Carolina officials say they're working to extradite Carnes.
