A Dreamer aged illegal immigrant has been arrested after going on a murder spree in a small Nevada town.
The 20-year-old suspect was stopped by police on an immigration related issue when police identified him as the suspect of four murders, USA Today reported.
Authorities in Nevada have arrested a suspect in connection with four recent homicides, including a beloved Reno couple, law enforcement said Sunday.
Wilbur Martinez-Guzman, 20, is being held at the Carson City detention center on charges related to burglary and possession of stolen property. He is also being held because of his immigration status, Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong said.
Washoe Sheriff Darin Balaam said murder charges should be following soon.
“We are confident we have the evidence that will link him to all four homicides,” said Balaam.
A tip was made that led police to watch Martinez-Guzman, police said. Police also said he is the only suspect.
The string of murders that shook Northern Nevada started on Jan. 10 in Gardnerville, a small town south of Reno.
