N.Y. police arrest fugitive on 10 most wanted list

Police, expecting to make a drug bust, arrested the longest-sought fugitive on the FBI's 10 most wanted list - and found three submachine guns in his luggage, officials said.

The arresting officers did not know Joseph McDonald was on the list, holding him for eight hours before he calmly announced ''Hey, fellas, I'm wanted by the FBI.'' He was arrested at Penn Station. He was on the list for charges of interstate transportation of stolen property and criminal conspiracy. Investigators have not ruled out the possibility Mr. McDonald had links with international terrorists.
