Man who shot 8 Mexican officials to death arrested in Sacramento
SACRAMENTO – A 53-year-old man suspected in the brutal massacre of 8 officials in Mexico was located and arrested in Sacramento on Tuesday.
On May 2nd in the year 2000 Genaro Olaguez shot the officials of Sinaloa, Mexico to death, and injured 4 others. One of the officials killed was the city commissioner.
Olaguez allegedly used “heavy weapons” in the attack that led the Mexican government to ask for help from United States in locating his whereabouts.
Over ten years later on Tuesday, December 3, a U. S, Marshals fugitive task force found and arrested Olaguez following the receipt of information regarding his location in the Noralto neighborhood of north Sacramento.
Although he attempted to deter authorities by providing false identification, officials confirmed his identity and arrested him without incident. He was booked that day into Sacramento County Main Jail. Additional charges he was booked for include cultivation of marijuana and theft of utility services.
Olaguez awaits transfer to Mexico.
