Fugitive turns himself in after appearing on billboards

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Less than a week after putting up billboards, the FBI says a federal fugitive surrendered to agents.

Authorities had been searching for Oscar Romero, who they say is a member of the Loiza Boys Gang and was wanted on a federal grand jury indictment for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin and cocaine.

The FBI put digital billboards up in Buffalo earlier this week in a partnership with Lamar Advertising, which provided the ads free of charge as a public service. They were discontinued Friday when the 33-year-old turned himself in.
