EDINBURG, TEXAS (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — Christopher Cruz is suspected of killing a man in Idaho last month. The Minidoka Sheriff's Office had a tip that he and an accomplice came to Edinburg. The Edinburg Police found Cruz and his girlfriend Stephanie Juarez, and also arrested some friends who helped them hideout.
"There are investigators from Minidoka Sheriff's Office that are in our city right now, they flew down and they're proceeding with their investigation, and they're making the arrangements for their extradition," said Oscar Trevino of the Edinburg Police Department. "I know that the Minidoka Sheriff's Office was very pleased with the work that was done, they were excited when they got the news that we had these people in custody, and this was a perfect example of law enforcement agencies working together and cooperating."
It isn't known when Cruz and Juarez will be sent back to Idaho. The other couple will face charges for hindering an apprehension.
