A 42-year-old man who was charged with raping a child in Pennsylvania was originally arrested on the run from authorities in Alabama, only to have another warrant issued for his arrest in Pennsylvania, according to court documents.

He was arrested on May 17 in Alabama, as reported by abc3340.

Romero was caught shoplifting at a local Walmart in Alabama. He was arrested as a fugitive from justice after authorities checked his background, according to Oxford Police Captain LG Owens.

He was released on a $500,000 unsecured bail on June 30 per an "Agreement between DA and PD," as stated in the court docket.
