The purported criminal being accused of killing a Houston area law enforcement official was in the country illegally, according to authorities.
In addition to the already pending charges, Oscar Rosales has also been accused of violating an immigration law.
Oscar Rosales, the suspect wanted in the deadly shooting of Harris County Pct. 5 Constable’s Office Corporal Charles Galloway, was arrested in Mexico, authorities confirm.
The U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Violent Offenders and Fugitive Task Force, in conjunction with Mexican authorities, arrested Rosales without incident in Ciudad Acuña, which is located on the border with Del Rio, Texas.
Houston police say they are working with law enforcement partners to begin the process of returning Oscar Rosales, 51, to the city. He was brought back a little before 7 p.m. where the 51-year-old will be processed at Harris County jail.
We're told Rosales also made his appearance in Probable Cause Court late Wednesday night where a judge denied his bond. While in court, a masked Rosales was heard saying he knew there was a metaphorical target on his back due to his crime.
"Right here, all the officers and the security guard…if they want to try [sic] kill me right here, they can do it, whatever, I don't care," he said. "Everybody right here in this room is waiting for the chance to hurt me."
