PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) _ A homeless-shelter director suspected of embezzling $120,000 when he disappeared more than a month ago has been arrested in Kentucky.

David Gillooly, 42, was arrested Sunday night at the Louisville airport after authorities got a tip that he might be there. Detectives would not say whether he was about to board a plane.

The executive director of Port Cities Rescue Mission is wanted on theft charges in Texas. He disappeared May 13.

What the agency didn’t know at the time was that Gillooly was also wanted in Virginia, where authorities said he has been a fugitive since violating his parole in 1996. He faces a 10-year prison sentence there.

He had been jailed in Virginia on charges of forging checks while executive director of a nonprofit AIDS organization in Norfolk, Va.
