Fugitive robber arrested after four months on the run

A 37-year-old ethnic Greek from the former Soviet Union who had absconded while on a furlough from Felli Prison in Grevena, northwestern Greece, last November was caught by police on Thursday in Menemeni, a suburb of Thessaloniki.

The fugitive is serving time for several burglaries in central Thessaloniki and Menemeni.
