Upon arrival, officers cleared the residence and found Sanchez hiding under a bed. The Chico Police Department was initially unable to identify Sanchez after he gave false identification to authorities.

After a fingerprint scan, Sanchez’s identity was confirmed, and the arrest warrant for murder was seen along with other active warrants from the Chico Police Department.

Extradition was then approved by the Berks County District Attorney’s office with a date to be determined as Sanchez has other pending charges in California.
