VERO BEACH, Fla. - A fugitive featured on America's Most Wanted was arrested in Vero Beach, says Thomas Raulen, spokesman for the Indian River County Sheriff's Office.
Around 10:30 Saturday night, deputies from the Indian River County Sheriff's Office arrested wanted fugitive Karen Lynn King, confirms Raulen. King was at the home of her boyfriend, Aziz Munir, who was renting a condo at the Dunes House in the Sea Oaks community in the 8800 block of N Sea Oaks Way.
Raulen says King was wanted for crimes in Alabama and had warrants for aggravated assault with intent to murder, aggravated battery with intent to disfigure, kidnapping, armed robbery, and various drug related charges.
An anonymous caller contacted the sheriff's communication center and indicated that King, who was featured on the America's Most Wanted Web site, may be at the Sea Oaks location.
According to Raulen, law enforcement conducted surveillance on the residence for a brief time and observed Munir leave to walk his dog. They met with him a short distance from the condo, and Munir confirmed that King was in the home. Deputies entered the residence, and King surrendered without incident.
Raulen says King had changed her hair color to blonde since the photo of her featured on America's Most Wanted was taken. She was also in possession of several forms of ID and credit cards which were in names other than her own.
Additional charges are pending.
Munir was not charged with an offense as of last night, confirms Raulen.
King is being held in the Indian River County Jail pending extradition.
