Ugly Police Mug of the Week Goes to Man Wanted in '92 Slaying, Rojelio Reyes Calvillo
. . . on October 3, 1992!
Calvillo, a 35-year-old former Tustin resident, was just scooped up crossing the Mexican border into Texas.
Calvillo was captured as he tried to cross from Juarez into El Paso in the pedestrian lane of the border crossing. After being taken to the border enforcement station, it was discovered his fingerprints linked him to warrants for the 1992 Santa Ana homicide and a parole violation.
A security guard at a nearby apartment complex witnessed the shooting and saw the gunman toss his weapon as he ran away, according to Santa Ana police, who recovered the gun.
Calvillo was not a suspect in the murder until this past March, when DNA evidence indicated he was the suspect. A $1 million arrest warrant was issued for him in May.
His rap sheet already includes auto theft, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of controlled substance paraphernalia and domestic violence.
