A former Yukon resident and international fugitive has been arrested in the United Kingdom after more than 13 years following his conviction.

In 2010, a jury found Mehran Koranki guilty of mail fraud and laundering, but investigators said Koranki fled the US before sentencing.

"Those who seek to evade justice will eventually be apprehended and held accountable," US Attorney Robert Troester said.

US Marshals arrested back in February, and he was extradited back to the US in June.

Koranki will serve a 13-year sentence for the 2010 conviction.
