International Murder Fugitive reported to Fugitive Watch is captured in San Jose after he barricaded himself in a San Jose motel.
Fugitive Watch is proud to announce that Cain Castillo Casteneda age 36 years was captured in San Jose after a barricaded standoff in a San Jose, Motel. Casteneda was being sought by Homeland Security after the Mexican Government asked for his arrest on warrants charging him with a 1992 Bank Robbery, Poss. of Firearms, participating in an organized criminal organization, Jail Escape and the Murder of a police officer in Tehuacuan, Puebla, Mexico.
Fugitive Watch originally received the tip about Casteneda. Fugitive Watch Executive Producer Steve Ferdin then conducted an extensive investigation, contacting the Mexican police in Tehuacan, Puebla, Mexico.
His investigation took him several months of working his way through the maze of Mexican law enforcement agencies to verify that the information was true. He then contacted the Department of Homeland Security and informed them of the results of his investigation.
On Friday, Sept. 29th, Caseneda fled from Homeland Security agents with the help of a co-worker and friends.
On Sat. Sept. 30th Fugitive Watch received another tip giving the description of a car a friend had provided him. Homeland Security located Castillo hiding out at a Motel 6 on 1st/Brokaw. After a standoff, Castillo came out of the motel room crying. He admitted to agents that he knew he was wanted by police in Mexico.
Homeland Security reports that it will take a few weeks for them to make arrangements with the Mexican Government to hand over Castillo at the United States/Mexican border.
