A traffic stop Wednesday on Interstate 10 in Gulfport led to the arrest of a man wanted in Florida, Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said.
Michael Rupert Burke, 64, was arrested shortly after he was pulled for an equipment violation and a background check showed that he was wanted as a fugitive from justice related to a felony charge of failure to redeliver lease property.
Burke was taken to the Harrison County jail, where he was being held Friday pending extradition back to Florida.
