A Paragould man is back in the United States after authorities arrested him in the Philippines.

According to the U.S. Marshals Service, Calvin Billips was arrested after being on the run. Federal agents tracked him to Japan and eventually to the Philippines.

Billips spent 70 months in prison for child pornography. He was on probation and nearly finished, but was about to be indicted again for child pornography. Marshals said he fled the U.S. before the warrant was issued.

Billips was expected to see a federal judge in California Wednesday before being sent back to Arkansas.
