BetOnSports founder Gary Kaplan has been arrested in the Dominican Republic, U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway said in a prepared statement released Friday.
Hanaway said Kaplan was arrested late Wednesday at a hotel in Santo Domingo in a joint effort undertaken by the Dominican National Police, the U.S. State Department and the FBI.
"This was a worldwide search, and thanks to the assistance of many law enforcement agencies this fugitive will soon be back in St. Louis to face the charges against him," Hanaway said.
IGN will report further in due course.
