American authorities have been looking for Vincent Legrend Walters for 24 years, and now Mexican police say they have nabbed him in a popular resort town.

FOX News Radio's Don Mathisen reports:

Vincent Walters is wanted in San Diego on murder, kidnapping, weapons and drug charges.  Authorities say he was working at Cancun International Airport under an assumed name.

Investigators say Walters had boasted to people that he was a fugitive who was wanted in the U.S.  He's on the U.S. Marshal's Service list of 15 "Most Wanted" fugitives.

Walters is jailed in Mexico City, awaiting extradition to the United States.
