first_imgEL MONTE – A standard DUI checkpoint in El Monte has resulted in the arrest of a fugitive wanted in connection with a 1988 killing in the Chicago area, police said.Francisco Sandoval, 55, who police said was using the pseudonym Leonel Valencia, was arrested at 7 p.m. Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. A live-scan fingerprint taken at the El Monte police station later revealed the outstanding warrant.“We had no idea who he was when we arrested him,” said Sgt. Dan Burlingham. “We just arrested him for the DUI.”Sandoval is being held by the El Monte Police Department without bail, and is awaiting extradition to Chicago.According to police, Sandoval faces first-degree murder charges in Illinois.Chicago police Officer Kristina Schuler said it appears Cook County Sheriff’s police issued a warrant for Sandoval’s arrest after he failed to appear in court on the murder charges 17 years ago.Schuler and her associates could not get more information on the case as of Tuesday evening, she said.Burlingham said he could not determine how long the fugitive has lived in California, but said his driver license dates to 2000.“He came out here and set up a new identity and has been running from the police,” Burlingham said.“I know when he came in here, he was very calm and not excited, as though there were no worries in world.”The DUI checkpoint was routine for El Monte police, but the arrest was unique, said Burlingham.“I got excited, to be honest,” he said. “It’s sort of exciting that you get lucky every once in a while.“When we do checkpoints, we catch a little bit of everything. We make the streets safer, and, obviously, finding this individual did that.” [email protected](626) 962-8811, Ext. 2303 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
