KANSAS CITY, Mo., - Missouri police have arrested a man wanted in the United Kingdom in connection to a 1993 armored vehicle theft and are holding him on a weapons charge, authorities said.

Edward John Maher, wanted for stealing "a large amount of cash" while working as a security guard, admitted to the FBI that he came to the United States in 1998 to work, the FBI said in an affidavit.

British authorities were seeking approval to have Maher extradited, according to a posting on Friday on the website of the Suffolk Constabulary.

British police had been looking for Maher, who had been living under his brother's name, for 19 years in connection with the theft of a million British pounds ($1.6 million) from an armored transport van in Felixstowe, England.
