Police say they arrested a violent fugitive in a hotel room at Encore Boston Harbor casino in Everett, Massachusetts, on Friday morning.
Jeremey N. Sanchez, 23, of Lowell, was arrested in his hotel room by the Massachusetts State Police tactical operations team and violent fugitive apprehension section.
Sanchez is a suspect in a violent crime in Maine, and state troopers and Maine police said they developed information that led them to the casino's hotel on Thursday night. They established surveillance of Sanchez's room and then convinced him to exit the room around 6:45 a.m. Friday.
He was placed under arrest and is being held in connection with a warrant out of Lawrence District Court for firearms offenses that occurred last month, police said.
