Kathleen Soliah is a doctor's wife and mother of three teenagers.
But police say she is also a former member of the Symbionese Liberation Army- a radical group from the 70's.
As John Blackstone reports it was a TV show America's Most Wanted that may have led to her arrest.

With bank robberies and bombs, the radical college students and ex-convicts who called themselves the Symbionese Liberation Army siezed the nation s attention in the mid 1970's. When they kidnaped wealthy newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst and then convinced her to join their cause, they gained worldwide notoriety. But by 1975 most of the SLA s members had been captured or killed. Six died in a fire and bloody shootout with Police in Los Angeles. But for almost 25 years Kathleen Ann Soliah has been a fugitive.
Today in a quiet neighborhood in St Paul Minnesota the FBI stopped a

suburban mother driving a van. The woman they say is really the long missing radical. JAMES BURRIS/FBI: THE POLICE CAR PULLED THE VEHICLE OVER. SOLIAH WAS ARRESTED WITHOUT INCIDENT.
The FBI says Soliah was using the name Sara Jane Olson. And she did not keep a low profile. At age 52 she acted in a local theater company. Neighbors say she is married to a doctor and the mother of three teenage children.
JAMES BURRIS I CAN T ANSWER EXACTLY HOW SHE WAS ABLE TO FIT IN--JUST SUFFICE TO SAY THAT WE CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR ALL FUGITIVES THAT ARE OUTSTANDING.
The 25th Anniversary last month of the Los Angeles shootout renewed interest in Soliah. And the TV program, America s Most Wanted profiled her case...she s accused of planting bombs under LA police cars.
JOHN BLACKSTONE/CBS NEWS: Soliah s husband told CBS news he had no idea that his wife was a fugitive. He saidwhen police told him she was under arrest he almost fainted. John Blackstone, CBS News, San Franscisco.))
