One of Maryland's 10 most wanted fugitives, a convicted murderer sought for violating parole, has been captured in Arizona and should be returned to the state by the end of the week, state police said yesterday.
State police spokesman Chuck Jackson said James Glacken, 38, was captured Dec. 18 by sheriff's deputies and FBI agents who surrounded the mobile home he was living in south of Tucson.
Mr. Jackson said authorities seized a rifle and a handgun in the mobile home. Glacken was ordered held on $500,000 bond at the Pima County Sheriff's Department in Tucson pending extradition to Maryland.
Glacken was wanted for violating conditions of his parole after pleading guilty to second-degree murder charges in the 1974 stabbing death of an Elkridge motel clerk and serving prison time.
