Fugitive Wanted For 18 Years Found In Key West

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — A woman wanted by federal authorities for 18 years has been found and arrested in Key West.

Michelle Singleton failed to appear in federal court for sentencing on charges of payroll check fraud in 1996. A federal fugitive warrant was issued for her arrest.

The Secret Service recently received information Singleton was living in Key West under the name Catherine Harris.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, a detective recognized Singleton as a woman he had seen several times in Key West. Investigators went the houseboat where she was living and questioned her about her identity.

Investigators say Singleton told officers she had obtained a birth certificate with the name Harris a month after fleeing Kansas City.

She was taken into custody on federal fugitive charges.
