BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Federal officials say a former international body builder wanted on drug-distribution charges in Hungary has been caught in South Florida.

The U.S. Department of Justice reports that Maria Luca Zavoczki was captured Tuesday in Boynton Beach.

Besides the drug charges, officials say the woman was part of a European criminal enterprise that specialized in manufacturing fake credit cards and committing bank fraud in Hungary, Austria and Italy.

The U.S. Marshals Service reports that Zavoczki is being held pending removal from the United States on immigration violations and document and identify fraud. The Palm Beach Post (http://goo.gl/r3x8u4 ) reports that she faces a 10-year prison term in Hungary.
