STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) -- A drug suspect sought by Arizona since 1997 has been arrested in the northwest Iowa city of Storm Lake.

Police say 40-year-old Jesus Carlos Soto was arrested Wednesday at a construction site. He'd been working under another name.

The warrants alleged possession of narcotics for sale and possession of marijuana for sale and were issued by Maricopa County authorities. Phoenix is among the cities in Maricopa County.

Maricopa County investigators tipped Storm Lake police on Wednesday that the FBI suspected Soto may be living in Storm Lake.

Soto remained in Buena Vista County Jail on Friday. He's being held without bail, awaiting extradition to Arizona. It's unclear whether he has an attorney.
