LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — A man being sought on a Virginia homicide warrant has been arrested in New Mexico.
Border Patrol agents working at the Interstate 25 checkpoint north of Las Cruces apprehended 20-year-old Abel Alexander Castro Juarez on Friday night.
Authorities said commercial bus traveling north arrived at the checkpoint and agents performing an immigration inspection of all passengers located a man attempting to hide in the restroom.

Details of the Virginia case weren’t immediately available and it was unclear Sunday if Juarez has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.
