FBI’s long-arm-of-the-law reaches fugitive living new life as a pastor in Alabama

It’s only a matter of time until this is made into a script for a TV show.

A man who has been on the run from the FBI was captured in Alabama on November 19th after assuming a new identity as a pastor.

Larry Albert Flake, age 74, was convicted of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor in Indiana in August, 2001.

After he failed to appear for trial, he was sought after by federal agents.

The FBI says he was living under the name Larry White and was a pastor at a church near Birmingham—those in the area knew him as Reverend White.

The FBI found him due to an unnamed source, and say without the lead, Flake would not have been found.

Flake will face extradition to be returned to Indiana, according to the FBI.
