New Mexico State Police Arrest Long Beach Man Suspected for Murder
Nicholas Gutierrez, a 27-year-old Long Beach resident on the lam over murder charges, was captured last week outside a Circle K in Lordsburg, New Mexico, per the Las Cruces Sun-News.
According to authorities, the State Police was alerted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department about a murder suspect, driving a 1990 two-door white Acura Integra with California license plates, possibly traveling on the I-10 Freeway heading towards Louisana.
On March 11, at roughly 3:00, an officer spotted Gutierrez's unoccupied Accura at a Circle K.
When an officer approached Gutierrez, he ran towards his car. The officer deployed his taser and subdued Gutierrez, and took him into custody.
Gutierrez was booked in the Hidalgo County Detention Center and will be extradited to California for prosecution.
