Waterloo man may be longtime fugitive from North Carolina

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (AP) -

Iowa officials are awaiting a fingerprint check to confirm that a man being held in Waterloo is a fugitive of more than 40 years from North Carolina.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says the man was arrested after the Iowa Transportation Department's facial recognition system flagged his driver's license photo.

Officers say they found information in his residence that identified him as 68-year-old Ronald Dwaine Carnes.

Records say Carnes was convicted of robbery in the Winston-Salem, N.C., area in November 1970 and sentenced to 20 years. He escaped the Mecklenburg Correctional Center in Huntersville, N.C., in August 1973.

Authorities say the man they believe is Carnes moved to Waterloo from Washington state last summer. Authorities say he used the name Louie Vance to apply for an Iowa license in March.
