FROM BBC WORLD SERVICEMore from BBC World Service"He was making posts about how beautiful life is and how he was having a good time with his buddies," said Assistant US Attorney Michael Scoville."He was definitely not living the way we wanted him to be living, given the charges he was facing," he added.The 26-year-old, who is currently in custody in Mexico City, initially sold roses in Seattle nightclubs after arriving in the US in 2003. He then allegedly moved on to bank fraud.The former justice department official whom Mr Sopo befriended on the social networking site said he had only met the fugitive a few times in the city's nightclubs and had no idea that he was on the run.He was able to discover exactly where Mr Sopo was living and the information was passed to the Mexican authorities who arrested him last month._46544397_-8.jpg
