May 15th 2012   ·   0 Comments

TUCSON – Two suspects wanted on separate charges of murder and homicide were arrested by Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents this weekend.

On Friday, agents from the Ajo Station encountered a 19-year-old U.S. citizen near Forest Route 21 on the Tohono O’odham Nation, according to a news release from Customs and Border Protection. During questioning, the man told agents he was a citizen who had crossed the border illegally, and was wanted for murder in Phoenix.

Agents confirmed the man had multiple active warrants, including one for murder, and took him into custody, where he was later turned over the Pima County Sheriffs for extradition.

On Saturday, agents discovered an outstanding warrant for homicide on a Mexican national during immigration processing, the CBP release states. The warrant was issued in Los Angeles by the LAPD. A criminal history check showed he had also been sentenced for transport/sale of narcotics and for grand theft. He faces extradition to California to face the homicide charge, CBP officials state.
