Fugitive Accused of Impersonating Priest Arrested in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) - U.S. marshals say they arrested a man wanted in
four states for impersonating a priest and stealing items from hospital patients and employees.

Leslie Earl Raymond, 38, was arrested Monday in Las Vegas by members of a regional fugitive apprehension team after a tip from a person who recognized him from a weekend segment on the television
show "America's Most Wanted."

Javier Jimenez, assistant chief deputy U.S. marshal, says Raymond was sought in California, South Dakota, Texas and Iowa on fraud, burglary and forgery charges.

Jimenez says Raymond dyed his hair, used aliases, and slept in different places before he was apprehended without incident at the
Palace Station casino hotel.

Raymond is being held at the Clark County jail pending an hearing Thursday on his extradition to California.
