On Wednesday, March 14th, 2013, members of the US Marshal's Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force upon receiving word from members of US Marshal Service Eastern North Carolina Task Force requesting assistance in locating a subject identified as Jorge Luis Juarez WM 10-14-1991.

Juarez was wanted by members of the Raleigh Police Department, for a 10-31-2012 homicide, which involved a group of individuals who were burglarizing a vehicle. The vehicle's owner was shot and killed during the incident. The case received a considerable amount of media attention after the perpetrators were identified as members of a Latin gang named sureno 13, which are affiliates of the "Mexican mafia".

USMS personnel were able to develop information indicating Juarez was residing at 254 Iris Avenue, Jefferson, La. Around 6:30 PM this evening, members of the USMS GCRFTF located and arrested Juarez without incident at the 254 Iris Avenue address. Juarez informed task force members that he is currently on probation in North Carolina for burglary, and has prior arrests for armed robbery. Juarez has been living in Jefferson Parish since November 2012.

Juarez was transported to the JPCC, where he was booked as a fugitive from North Carolina. Extradition proceedings are underway to have Jorge Juarez returned back to North Carolina.
