Another homicide suspect arrested in Menlo Park

 

For the second time in two weeks, a suspect wanted for homicide in Merced County has been arrested in Menlo Park, according to a Menlo Park Police Department report.

Around 2 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 15, detectives from the Narcotic Enforcement Team spotted a silver BMW linked to the Merced case parked in the driveway of a home in the 100 block of Newbridge Street in Menlo Park, according to the report. They set up surveillance around the residence, which paid off when a man matching the description of one suspect left in a dark-colored Honda approximately two and a half hours later.

The resulting traffic stop led to the arrest of 24-year-old Victor Hernandez of Menlo Park. He has been transported to the Merced County jail, the report said.

Officers from multiple jurisdictions joined a search for another homicide suspect, but came up empty-handed. Jose Hernandez, 26, of Menlo Park, is believed to still be the area, police said.

Police ask that anyone with information about this case call 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at 330-6395.
