Australia's most wanted fugitive arrested in Philippines

Philippine immigration and police agents have arrested Australia's most wanted man in his home in a posh area of southern Manila.

Police Chief Superintendent Benito Estipona said Monday that officers arrested Brett Ronald Maston in Muntinlupa City's Ayala Alabang subdivision. He had apparently hid in the Philippines for years.

The 45-year-old was allegedly involved in a string of bank robberies.

Estipona said Australian authorities had sought Maston's arrest. The immigration bureau issued a deportation warrant and after receiving information of his whereabouts, arrested him on Friday.

Estipona says Maston was earlier reported to be armed, but he did not resist arrest and no guns were immediately found in his possession.
