A man wanted for allegedly molesting his daughter and stepdaughter was arrested in Mexico and returned to US custody last week.

Michael Joseph Chavez, 33, allegedly sexually molested his 9-year-old daughter and 10-year-old stepdaughter back in 2006. He fled Sacramento County before he could be arrested, with authorities not knowing his whereabouts until March 2011.

Tipsters helped lead local and federal authorities to Mexico, where information led detectives to believe Chavez was hiding just outside of Mexico City.

Working with Mexican authorities, Chavez was eventually arrested in Cancun on Dec. 13. The next day, Chavez was extradited to Houston, Texas, then back to Sacramento later in the evening.

Chavez was booked into Sacramento County Jail and is awaiting his arraignment, to happen on Dec. 18.

    Thanks for your concepts. One thing I’ve got noticed is the fact banks and financial institutions know the dimensions and spending behaviors of consumers and as well understand that plenty of people max out their credit cards around the breaks. They correctly take advantage of this particular fact and then start flooding your current inbox and snail-mail box along with hundreds of Zero APR card offers shortly when the holiday season ends. Knowing that for anyone who is like 98% of all American open public, you’ll leap at the possiblity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and transfer balances for 0 apr interest rates credit cards.
