KETCHUM, Idaho -- Authorities have arrested a 65-year-old man who lived the last three years in an Idaho resort town on charges he helped steal millions of dollars from a Los Angeles physician.
Police in Sun Valley say Neil D. Campbell was arrested earlier this month and is being held in a local jail pending extradition to California.
Campbell and 58-year-old Phillip Powers are accused of more than 140 counts of grand theft of personal property in a Los Angeles County case.
Prosecutors allege they duped a physician out of more than $28 million by convincing him to invest in a teak farm in Costa Rica.
The Idaho Mountain Express reports Campbell was arrested near his Sun Valley condominium.
Powers has pleaded not guilty and is being held on bond.
