— A familiar face around the Durham County courthouse is now behind bars.

For decades, the man told everyone that his name was Rambo and he was a retired police officer.

However, it turns out his real name is Fred Pelham and he is wanted in New York.

Investigators arrested him on a felony fugitive warrant for violating probation on a sexual abuse charge from more than 20 years ago.
