Costa Rica nabs another alleged fraudster wanted by FBI

October 3, 2008

Police in the central Pacific town of Manuel Antonio last week arrested a U.S. citizen wanted for theft by the FBI.

Dean Albert Clark, 55, is charged in Sacramento, California, for his alleged involvement in a $150 million scheme in which Clark and his associate are believed to have rented Costa Rican vacation homes to more than 45 people, collecting money, and never notifying the landlords, according to a press release from DIS-Interpol.

Police found him working at a real estate agency in Quepos, on the central Pacific coast, the release said, adding that Clark is believed to have fled his business in Nevada County, California, for Costa Rica upon learning of the charges against him.

Clark was detained Thursday afternoon after an investigation by the Quepos Delegation Police, the Judicial Investigation Police and DIS-Interpol, which then sent him to San José for extradition proceedings.
