TUCSON, Ariz. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection Field Operations officers at the Port of Nogales arrested two men Sept. 18 with outstanding warrants out of Maricopa County.
CBP officers first stopped Daniel Lopez-Olivarria, a 36-year-old Mexican national residing in Avondale, Arizona, for additional questioning as he attempted to enter the U.S. through a pedestrian lane at the DeConcini crossing. When officers conducted a records check, they found that Lopez has an active arrest warrant for 2nd degree murder.
A couple of hours later, officers encountered Manuel Murrieta, a 47-year-old Nogales, Arizona resident, when he attempted to enter the U.S. through a DeConcini pedestrian crossing. Officers then learned through a records check that he has an active arrest warrant for money laundering.
Both men were turned over to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office to await extradition.
