Inswood, who beat a murder rap in Brooklyn in the 1980s, was convicted of a robbery but accidentally sprung fromRikersin 1994 while awaiting deportation to his nativeJamaica.
He landed on theU.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's most-wanted list and was spotlighted several times on "America's Most Wanted."
The whole time, he was living inNew Jersey, where he raised two children with a girlfriend. He laid low, but didn't exactly leave behind his violent past - which includes a dozen arrests.
The Brooklyn DA's squad got a tip he was working as muscle for a local laborers union, threatening job sites if they didn't hire certain workers.
"He was still a thug, a thug who thought he had gotten away with everything - until now," a law enforcement source said.
Investigators assigned to the Brooklyn District Attorney's office, along with immigration andSecret Serviceagents busted Inswood Tuesday inEast Orange.
