Feds: Fugitive Caught After Getting Married

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Apparently, there will be no honeymoon for one of New Mexico’s Most Wanted fugitives.

Authorities said known gang-member Daniel Jojola was arrested Monday in Roswell after he was spotted with his bride just hours after the pair tied the knot.

U.S. Marshals said Jojola, who was wanted on a parole violation, got married in Carrizozo, then was seen walking into a Roswell home to celebrate.

When federal agents arrived at the Roswell house, authorities said Jojola attempted to flee from the back but was quickly caught. Authorities said Jojola was arrested and found in possession of methamphetamine and a 9mm handgun.

Federal officials say Jojola is associated with the “Eastside Chihuahuita” gang and has an extensive criminal record.

It was unclear if he had an attorney.
