CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa man who fled authorities in 1994 while facing LSD charges is back in custody more than 20 years later.

Court records show the U.S. Marshals Service took 49-year-old Matthew Samuel West into custody Dec. 27. The former fugitive wanted by the FBI is being held at the Linn County Jail.

A jury convicted West in 1992 of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute LSD. Additional drug and money laundering charges were pending against him.
