San Diego A 22-year-old Mexican man wanted in the U.S. for allegedly running over and killing a U.S. Border Patrol agent has been arrested, the Mexican attorney general's office said Wednesday.
Jesus Navarro Montes was captured Tuesday in the northern Mexico state of Sonora after a three-day manhunt involving Mexican and U.S. law enforcement authorities.
Navarro was allegedly fleeing federal officers near Andrade, Calif., Saturday in a drug-laden Hummer when Agent Luis Aguilar, 32, threw a spike strip in front of the vehicle to try to stop it.
Navarro, a Mexican citizen, allegedly ran over Aguilar and then drove over the Imperial Sand Dunes into Mexico. The dunes are located in southeastern California near the Arizona border.
