SAN JUAN - One of San Juan's most wanted fugitives is finally in police custody.

26 year old Benito Vargas was put on the most wanted list in 2009 for aggravated assault of a minor and human smuggling.

Police discovered that Vargas and his family were holding a 16 year old Mexican national against her will in this home.

But when police arrived, Vargas fled the state.

For the last three years Vargas has been serving time in federal prison for unrelated charges.

He is being extradited back to San Juan tonight, where he will later be arranged.
