By BBN Staff: David Nanes Schnitzer, the American fugitive wanted for his role in a multi-million dollar ponzi-scheme, was caught this week by Interpol in Mexico City.
Schnitzer was caught at the Mexico City International Airport. According to authorities, Schnitzer had arrived from Havana, Cuba carrying travel documents including passports, drivers licenses, and other official documents identifying him under another name.
He has been taken into custody by Interpol until Mexican police can prepare proper documentation for a formal arrest.
Schnitzer was taken into custody by Belizean police in November 2015. He was found in possession of a number of Belizean nationality documents and was remanded to prison but applied for bail. He was granted bail despite opposition from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and he later fled the country.
