Chula Vista murder suspect nabbed in TJ
According to state authorities, a man suspected of committing a murder in Chula Vista was apprehended by Baja California state police in Tijuana Thursday, October 4th. Alex Flores Rubio, who is allegedly a member of the “Otay 13 Boys” gang, was arrested by the specialized international fugitive unit after United States Marshals issued a warning for his presence in Baja.
Details on the murder he is suspected in committing have not been released. It is believed the crime is connected to a gang dispute and happened in recent weeks.
The international unit of the Baja state police have direct communication with U.S. authorities, which leads to commonplace cross-border arrests.
