Oliver pleaded guilty to defrauding dozens of D.C.-area homeowners out of more than $2.5 million, but he vanished in 2005 before a judge could send him to prison.

On Monday, after a decade-long search, the FBI announced that the fugitive has been quietly living in the Los Angeles area, working as a home renovation consultant with his wife, Jennifer Oliver.

The pair has several aliases. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said Oliver had recently gone by Leigh Owsley, and his wife, Tara Jean.
