SAN LUIS – (KSWT News 13) - A man wanted for murdering a California fast food restaurant employee in 2004 is locked behind bars tonight.
Customs and Border Protection agents arrested Raul Marin Sandoval after he tried to enter the U.S. at the San Luis Port of Entry.
Officers singled him out for secondary inspection.
A routine background check identified him as a man wanted for committing a murder nine years ago.
Police say Sandoval and two other men robbed a Taco Bell in Monterey, California in December 2004.
During the robbery, police say college student Brenden Tsukimura, 18, was brutally murdered in the restaurant's walk-in freezer.
Sandoval and his two accomplices went after another employee in the manager's office, but ran when they heard police sirens approaching.
Sandoval was featured twice on the television show, "America's Most Wanted" in March and December of 2011.
According to AMW's web site, Sandoval's two accomplices were both captured and are currently serving 25 years to life behind bars.
But Sandoval got away and disappeared. On Tuesday, Sandoval resurfaced on his own.
Customs and Border Protection says Sandoval's arrest, while high-profile, isn't that uncommon. During fiscal 2012, more than 400 people were arrested for everything from murder and rape … to assault and robbery. More than 6,000 people were denied entrance into the country.
