A Deseret News reader helped authorities capture a man profiled in the FBI's Most Wanted column earlier this month.

FBI agents arrested Douglas Versluis, 36, last week after an anonymous caller who recognized his photograph in the newspaper and on KSL-TV told them of his whereabouts. The suspect was arrested near 1700 South 300 West after agents chased him over several fences.Versluis absconded parole after serving a prison sentence for rape and escape.
