— A Wake Forest man wanted in the shooting death of a Raleigh movie theater manager has been extradited from New Jersey, police said Thursday.

Anthony Joseph Bimbo, 40, of 5405 Orchard Oriole Trail, was arrested at a New Jersey Turnpike rest stop north of Trenton, N.J., on Oct. 27, three days after a masked gunman shot Mark Douglas Buhaug, 48, during a robbery attempt at the Marquee Cinema, 10600 Common Oaks Drive.

Raleigh police officers went to New Jersey last week and returned Bimbo to the Triangle on Nov. 25, police said. He is being held without bond at the Wake County Jail on charges of murder, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Two other men – Ryan Becker, 19, and Jason Zilinski, 18 – also have been charged with murder in Buhaug's death and are being held without bond.
