A homicide suspect featured on America's Most Wanted has been taken into custody by U.S Customs and Border Protection officers.

According to U.S Customs and Border Patrol officials, 26-year-old Raul Marin Sandoval was arrested while trying to re-enter the United States through an Arizona pedestrian crossing on Tuesday.

Sandoval was featured in AMW episodes that were aired between March and December in 2011 for a homicide he is suspected of committing in Salinas.

"I applaud our CBP officers in their role of ensuring this individual will be brought to justice," Port Directer Roque Caza said. "This arrest demonstrates just one of the many roles CBP plays in keeping our communities safe by taking dangerous criminals off our streets."
