On July 10, 2010 at approximately 9:30 pm Jose Cuevas-Gonzalez was arrested in Hostotipaquillo, a town in Jalisco Mexico. When confronted by federal police, Cuevas-Gonzalez attempted to flee but was taken into custody by agents of the Policia Federal Ministerial (PFM), which is the former AFI agency. Specifically, he was arrested by the extradition group that handles all arrests involving provisional arrest warrants. Clarke County authorities provided information that led to obtaining the provisional warrant some months ago.
The Clarke County Sheriff’s Office currently has an outstanding warrant and three indictments on Cuevas-Gonzalez stemming from the July 9, 2008 shooting incident on Nelson Road.
Sergeant Travis Sumption obtained the warrant for the attempted murder of Daniel Guerrero-Lopez on July 11, 2008. Sergeant Sumption and Investigator Tricia Putnam presented their case to the Clarke County Grand Jury on August 18, 2008. Cuevas-Gonzalez was indicted on charges of murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by an unlawful alien.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, who assisted in the matter, reports that Cuevas-Gonzalez will be handed over to U.S. authorities per the regular process, which could be in as little as 90 days or as long as 18 months.
