A fugitive has been arrested in Peru but its not who you’re thinking.

Peru Police say they saw 53-year-old Randy DeLaCruz hitchhiking Thursday night on Plank Road. He said he was looking for a ride to a motel in Peru.

The officer checked his background and found DeLaCruz was wanted on a U.S. Marshall’s warrant for violating parole on a homicide charge. He was arrested on the warrant and for being a fugitive from justice.

DeLaCruz who has a San Diego address was taken to the county jail in Ottawa.
