PASADENA, Calif.–Police say a man suspected in a nearly three-year-old double murder in Pasadena has been arrested in Mexico.

Pasadena police on Tuesday announced the arrest of Manuel Penaloza.

Police spokeswoman Janet Pope-Givens says the U.S. Marshals Service flew a team to Mexico on Aug. 6 and met with Mexican federal agents after receiving a tip that Penaloza was hiding in the small town of Zorcua, Guerrero.

She says agents set up surveillance and Penaloza was arrested without incident.

Police say Penaloza had been sought since the October 2006 deaths of two people who were found slain in a car.
