One of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives has been captured in Mexico, where he’s being held in connection with several murders in Los Angeles.

Jose “Joe” Luis Saenz is in captivity, but authorities aren’t saying exactly where. The FBI says he killed four people, including two rival gang members and his girlfriend in 1998 and a fourth victim 10 years later. He’s also accused of kidnapping and raping his girlfriend, who was the mother of his child.

The FBI wa offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to Saenz’ arrest. He was added to the FBI’s top 10 list in October 2009.

“This individual, Jose Saenz, will be brought to justice,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said then. “We will find him and prosecute him to the full extent, under the law. Make no mistake about it.”

Bill Lewis, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, thanked the various groups involved in Saenz’s arrest, including the Mexican federal police, the Mexican National Institute of Immigration, the Mexican attorney general and the FBI’s legal attache in Mexico City and its sub-office in Guadalajara, Mexico.
