Suspect In LASD Deputy's Killing Arrested In Mexico

December 17, 2012  | 

A suspect in the 2008 fatal shooting of an L.A. County sheriff's deputy was captured in Mexico, officials announced Monday.

L.A. County prosecutors said Armando Albarran, was charged with conspiracy and murder with the special circumstance that the murder was carried out to further a criminal street gang.

"Albarran was allegedly sitting in the back seat of the car when the 27-year-old officer was fatally shot as he was preparing to leave for his morning shift at the Men’s Central Jail," the district attorney's office said in a statement.

He's the fourth of six alleged gang members to face charges in the slaying.

It is good they finally caught him. However, if Mexico stands true to form they will not allow extradition unless we promise not to seek the death penalty. The Mexican government couldn't care less about our "special circumstances" or officers being killed and never misses a chance to dictate to our criminal justice system (or what is left of it).
