Man wanted for murder arrested at San Luis Port of Entry

Posted: Updated:

 

YUMA, Ariz. (KSWT News 13) - A California man featured twice on America's Most Wanted was arrested at the San Luis Port of Entry. 

The 26-year-old was wanted for committing murder in Salinas.

America's Most Wanted aired two episodes in March and December 2011 profiling him.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say Raul Sandoval attempted to enter the U.S. yesterday.

He was taken into custody after a background check showed he had a warrant for murder in 2004. 

Sandoval is being held with no bond at the Yuma County Detention Center. He is awaiting extradition back to Monterrey County.
