SAN FRANCISCO—A adult male was arrested by Mexican police in the Baja California town of Ensenada on May 5 for unlawful flight from the U.S.
Jerred Raymond Hernandez, 32, was taken into custody without incident pursuant to a federal arrest warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, which was issued in the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California on August 9, 2000, after Ukiah Police Department investigators determined that Hernandez fled the state of California.
According to the state criminal complaint, Hernandez is alleged to have committed murder during the commission of a robbery, which occurred in Ukiah, California, on August 2, 2000.
Hernandez’s arrest is the result of a joint collaboration by Ukiah Police Department; FBI San Francisco; FBI San Diego and the Border Liaison Program; FBI Legal Attaché Mexico City; U.S. Attorney’s Office, Northern District of California; U.S. Customs and Border Protection; and Policia Estatal Preventiva, Baja California State Police.
Hernandez will be prosecuted by the District Attorney in Mendocino County for murder.
