U.S. fugitive deported to States

Story PictureAnother fugitive from U.S. Justice has been captured in Belize and put on an airplane back to the States. Fifty-nine year old Roger Huskey was wanted by the D.E.A. and U.S. Marshals Service for Conspiracy to Distribute Marijuana as well as Bank Fraud. It is alleged that he operated a major weed distribution ring in the State of Arkansas, but fled the country following a June, 2005 indictment. Sources tell News Five that the Belize police were tipped off by Interpol and found Huskey at Clarissa Falls in the Cayo District, where he had been living for the last year. An expulsion order was issued and Huskey, in the company of a U.S. Marshal and two Belize police officers, left today on a flight to Houston en route to Little Rock, Arkansas, where he will face charges.
