After more than two years of searching, a 2015 murder suspect is now in custody. Isaias Cabello, wanted for the Lubbock murder of Henry Anderson, was arrested this morning by U.S. Marshals in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

"This arrest today was a culmination of two years' worth of relentless work from various local, state and federal agencies," said LPD Detective Thomas Bonds.

On December 3, 2015, Anderson was shot while in the area of 2006 Cedar. Despite life-saving efforts by paramedics, Anderson was later pronounced deceased in an ambulance. Lubbock Police Department investigators were able to quickly identify Cabello as the murder suspect and a warrant for his arrest was issued.

While LPD Detectives believed Cabello was on the run and left the state, the search never stopped. Detectives continued to develop leads and follow up on tips, hoping to catch Cabello and bring justice to Anderson's family.

Information gathered by LPD Detectives and the U.S. Marshals Service North Texas Fugitive Task Force Team Foxtrot led Marshals in Colorado to Cabello's location.

Cabello was taken into custody without incident and will be extradited back to Lubbock at a later date.

"I was able to work with some of the best law enforcement officers in the world. I would like to personally thank United States Marshal J. Pennington for all of his hard work. His work is second to none and was pivotal in this arrest," said Bonds. "I would also like to thank all the members of the North Texas Fugitive Task Force – Team Foxtrot which includes members of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office and the Lubbock Police Department, Chief Barry Romans and the Burlington Colorado Police Department, the Colorado Springs Police Department, The Prower's County Colorado Sheriff's Office, and numerous officers, detectives, and supervisors with the Lubbock Police Department. I hope this will bring Henry "Joby" Anderson Jr's family one step closer to closure."
