From the San Diego Union-Tribune on 2/5/14:

A 62-year-old woman suspected of fleeing the Virgin Islands four years ago to avoid prosecution for embezzlement was found last week in Fallbrook, the FBI said Wednesday.

Rosemary Sauter-Frett, also known as Rosemary Sauter, was arrested Jan. 30 at a residence in the North County community,
The former St. Thomas resident was found after the FBI’s San Diego office received a tip from the FBI office in San Juan, Puerto Rico regarding her possible location, Special Agent Darrell Foxworth said.
Sauter-Frett was arraigned Monday in federal court in San Diego on a charge of fleeing to avoid prosecution. Jailed without bail, she is due back in federal court in San Diego on Feb. 13.
Sauter-Frett is suspected of stealing $122,900 from customers, who thought their money was being held securely in the RE/MAX Dreams Properties escrow account.
