PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- An illegal immigrant with a kidnapping and homicide warrant in North Carolina was arrested last month in Yavapai County.

Detectives with the Partners Against Narcotics Trafficking taskforce executed a search warrant on a Prescott home on July 24 after learning that a man using the name Daniel Aspuro Gutierrez was living at the residence.

Authorities located the 33-year-old inside the house. They also found approximately 38 grams of methamphetamine, six grams of cocaine, and a handgun.

Gutierrez was booked on several charges, including misconduct involving weapons, possession of a dangerous drug for sale, and the kidnapping and homicide warrant. He is being held without bond.

Detectives are trying to determine Gutierrez’s real name as they continue to investigate the case.
