PASSAIC - Passaic Police say they have arrested a man in connection with the September murder of a teen outside of a Passaic nightclub.

Police say they arrested 20-year-old Farad Anthony just after midnight on New Year's Day in connection with the shooting death of 19-year-old Lois Morilla outside the Zarco Lounge after a fight allegedly broke out between groups of people on Sept. 10.

Prosecutors had charged Anthony in the murder a month after the shooting but were unable to locate him.

Recently police say they learned that he was hiding in Maryland but had recently returned to the area.

Investigators set up surveillance on the house he was believed to be hiding in and once he left, police apprehended him.

Anthony is currently being held in jail on $1 million bail.
