Mexico City - The US Marshals Service announced the capture of Vincent Legrend Walters, one of the law enforcement agency's 15 most wanted fugitives, in the resort city of Cancun.

Walters, 45, was wanted on kidnapping, murder and drug charges stemming from a 1988 San Diego, California, case.

The agency said Walters was apprehended on Friday morning, then transported to Mexico City where he will await extradition to the United States.

Walters had been working at the Cancun International Airport under the assumed name Oscar Rivera, according to a statement released by the agency.
