Eric Conn, who, until December 2, was one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives is back home in Kentucky.

Honduran authorities have captured a fugitive U.S. lawyer who was on America's most wanted list.

At a news conference earlier Tuesday announcing the arrest, Amy Hess, the Special Agent in Charge of Louisville's FBI Field Office, reminded reporters of her earlier vow to work with local, state, federal and global investigators to bring Conn back to the Bluegrass State.

A lawyer has reportedly been captured in Honduras after fleeing the United States to avoid sentencing for bribing an administrative law judge to obligate the government to pay more than $550 million in lifetime disability payments.

Police reportedly learned of Conn's location after he connected to the restaurant's wi-fi.

Eric Conn was captured by a SWAT team as he came out of a restaurant in the coastal city of La Ceiba, the Honduras public magistrate's office said Monday, crediting "arduous intelligence, surveillance and tailing by the agents".

"We implored him to cooperate", she said.

Conn was placed under house arrest after pleading guilty in March to social security fraud.

The indictment said Wyatt, who had worked at Conn's Floyd County, Ky., law office, even allegedly tested security at the US border with Mexico on Conn's behalf.

Conn was a flamboyant attorney known for his billboards and TV ads across Kentucky.

Hess told reporters Tuesday the Federal Bureau of Investigation had worked with about a dozen agencies to bring Conn to justice.

The Social Security Administration in 2015 ordered about 1,500 of Conn's former clients to prove at hearings that they deserved to continue receiving their disability checks, and hundreds were cut off.

"As I explained at the last press conference, we would bring all available resources to bear to find Mr. Conn and bring him to justice and hold him accountable for the lives he impacted and the trust he betrayed", Hess said.

Conn had been under investigation for years.

USA federal agents spent months tracking Conn, who cut off his electronic monitor and fled in June. White said they will enter a standard not guilty plea.
