SACRAMENTO - A man sought by U.S. Marshals for 13 years was arrested in Sacramento Tuesday.

Deputy Marshal Frank Newsom said Genaro Olaguez was suspected of killing a commissioner and seven other city officials and wounding four  others in a shooting in Sinaloa, Mexico on May 2, 2000.

On Tuesday, information was developed that Olaguez was living with his family in a home on the 2500 block of Grove Avenue. Members of the U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force (PSWRFTF) surveyed the area and identified Olaguez returning to the property in a vehicle, said Newsom.

PSWRFTF members arrested Olaguez who attempted to provide investigators with false identification, Newsom said. Investigators positively identified him despite the false information and booked him into Sacramento County Jail where he is scheduled to be held until his deportation back to Mexico.

According to Newsom, Olaguez also had an outstanding warrant in San Joaquin County for cultivation of marijuana and theft of utility services.
