Child predator wanted in Ariz. caught in Mexico again

Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a convicted child sex offender wanted in Arizona for violating his probation has been returned to Phoenix after fleeing to Mexico.

The U.S. Marshals Service said 42-old-year Samuel Alexander Wroolie was brought back to Arizona on Wednesday after authorities in Mexico arrested him in Mazatlan, Sinaloa.

Officials say Wroolie violated his conditions of probation and fled to Mexico last month. Authorities say it was the second time Wroolie tried to find refuge in Mexico.

Wroolie was convicted at attempted molestation of a child and is required to serve a lifetime term of probation.

David P. Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona, says in recent years federal authorities have developed closer ties with Mexican officials to apprehend fugitives.
