DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say they've captured a man wanted for a homicide in Texas and a kidnapping in New Mexico.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that Daytona Beach police officers, Volusia County deputies and the U.S. Marshals Service caught Jason Gibson on Tuesday.

Authorities say a license plate reader in Daytona Beach detected Gibson and his vehicle in the area on Sunday. Officers searched for him but didn't find him.

A license plate reader again alerted authorities to Gibson's presence on Tuesday, which led to his arrest after a chase and a crash into a parked vehicle.

Authorities didn't immediately release details about Gibson's alleged crimes in Texas and New Mexico.
