A California man who was wanted for charges including kidnapping, armed, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and driving under the influence, among others, was captured in Virginia by U.S. Marshals.

The Sheriff's department of Sacramento County, California tipped off Marshals and Sheriff's deputies from Rockingham County, who found Igor Babiy working in Harrisonburg at a construction site.

After a nearly five month search, officers arrested Babiy. In October of 2007, Babiy was released on two bonds of a total of $1.5 million before going on the run, according to Marshals.

An additional charge of being a fugitive from justice is also being faced by Babiy, placed by the Sheriff's Office of Rockingham County. The previous charges against him from California include kidnap for robbery, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, felony evasion, DUI, and malcious harm of the dog of a peace officer.

Babiy awaits extradition to California, where he could face a life sentence.
