ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man wanted in New Mexico in connection with a homicide and kidnapping case has been arrested in Texas.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the El Paso port of entry say 31-year-old Matthew Sifuentes of Albuquerque was taken into custody Friday.

They say Sifuentes entered the country from Mexico as a pedestrian and presented a college identification card to the CBP officer working at the primary inspection station.

Officers received notice that Sifuentes was wanted on an active murder warrant out of New Mexico’s Chaves County along with charges of kidnapping and tampering with evidence.

Sifuentes was arrested without incident and then turned over to El Paso police and booked into jail.

Details of the homicide and kidnapping case weren’t immediately available Monday.
