'Most Wanted' fugitive watches show with kin

WATERLOO, N.Y. (AP) — Nicholas Cerino could have reached out and touched one of "America's Most Wanted" — the fugitive profiled on the show was sitting in his living room.

Mark Cerino, 41, was identified on the show as a contractor wanted in Florida for allegedly scamming elderly residents after last year's hurricanes.

Nicholas Cerino said he was "just dumbfounded" to hear a warrant had been issued in Brevard County, Fla., for his younger brother, who has been staying at his home in central New York.

Nine people called the show's tip line to report he was at his brother's home, and Mark Cerino was arrested within hours of the Saturday night broadcast.
