A Colorado attorney suspected of stealing up to $1 million from his clients has been arrested in San Diego nearly five years after he disappeared.

Royal "Scoop" Daniel was last seen in Colorado in April 2007.

On Thursday, police officers in Breckenridge, Colo. announced Daniel was in jail in San Diego after being arrested while entering the U.S. from Mexico.

After an initial search by friends and police, authorities issued a warrant for his arrest, alleging he never returned clients' money from real estate transactions.
