At around 10 p.m. Friday night, the San Diego Regional Fugitive Task Force brought in Abraham Shorey, the alleged Collegetown Creeper, after over 18 months of being on the run, according to San Diegos KUSI news channel 9.

Shorey had been picked up several months ago in Oregon for a minor violation, but was let go when he used a fake alias. After appearing on Americas Most Wanted, Shorey sightings began being reported from California, where he was again picked up last Wednesday for driving without a license.

Again, he was released after giving a false name. Later that evening, his fingerprints registered on the national crime database and the Task Force began preperations to pick Shorey up.
