LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - New developments in the search for a Lubbock murder suspect.  Saturday night 27-years-old Raymundo Garza, was behind bars.  Garza is charged with murder for the death of 48-year-old Tina Sanchez.

Investigators say Garza stabbed Sanchez to death this past February inside her north Lubbock home.  Saturday evening, Lubbock Police alerted NewsChannel 11 to his capture. Police tell us they were informed around 4:15 p.m.

"I believe the truck was found first," said Lt. Neal Barron, of the Lubbock Police Department. "We were in the process of locating him after we located the truck, but Border Patrol just happened to find him first."

Authorities arrested Garza in Fort Hancock, Texas.  That's southeast of El Paso. Authorities captured him around 4:30 p.m. Friday, as he attempted to re-enter the U.S. from Mexico through a drainage canal.  Saturday night, Garza was held in El Paso, awaiting extradition to Lubbock.

Police say they also found Sanchez's, Dodge pick-up, missing since her murder, in Juarez, Mexico thanks to efforts by LPD and U.S. Marshals. Police say detectives from Lubbock have processed the truck for evidence. It's being stored in El Paso as well.
