Fibers from the suitcase led police to Rosendo Rodriguez III. Police learned he was staying in a house in San Antonio and set up surveillance. San Antonio police served the warrant and arrested Rodriguez around 2:45 p.m. Thursday. Lubbock police are in San Antonio talking with Rodriguez and trying to get a search warrant of the house.
