A former Rosemead man allegedly wanted by authorities in California was arrested in Mexico Monday on suspicion of spousal abuse, according to Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials and published reports in Guadalajara.
The man, identified as Henry Daniel West, 51, has outstanding warrants for his arrest in connection with a 2009 case alleging criminal threats and attempted extortion out of the sheriff’s Temple Station, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Michael Martinez said.
According to La Prensa Jalisco, West was arrested by Mexican authorities on suspicion of spousal abuse Monday, before his wife told investigators he was also wanted in California.
La Prensa additionally reported that Mexican authorities contacted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to confirm that West was wanted in the United States.
Further details of West’s alleged crimes in the Temple City area were not available Tuesday, and was unclear when he may be returned to the U.S. to face charges.
