Suspect In Southern California Murder Apprehended in Phoenix

The suspect was taken into custody at a local motel
Friday, September 21, 2018 - 12:15pm
- For Immediate Release -

Phoenix — On Wednesday, September 12, at about 9:17 a.m., Via’a Alaimalo, 25, from California was taken into custody by detectives with the Arizona Border Strike Force (BSF) Vehicle Theft Task Force (VTTF) in the area of McDowell and 52nd Dr. in Phoenix. Alaimalo had an active felony warrant for a homicide that occurred in San Bernardino County, CA.

 

At about 7:15 a.m., detectives with the VTTF located a Ford Explorer in the parking lot of a local area motel that had been used in a homicide in San Bernardino County. VTTF detectives contacted detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and received a description of the suspect associated with the homicide. Using that description, the VTTF detectives were able to identify Alaimalo walking outside of the motel.

 

With the assistance of AZDPS Fugitive Task Force detectives and members of the AZDPS SWAT team, Alaimalo was taken into custody without incident. At the time of his arrest he was found in possession of a .25 caliber handgun and a small amount of black tar heroin. Detectives and a crime scene investigator from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department traveled to Phoenix to assist in the investigation.

 

Alaimalo was booked into the Maricopa County jail for the confirmed homicide warrant and in awaiting his extradition hearing.

 

Captain P. Etnire, BSF VTTF Commander, said, “Our dedicated VTTF detective, coordinating resources from AZDPS with detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, led to the successful result of having the suspect taken into custody and preserving valuable evidence for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department case detectives. Criminals may think their chances of being apprehended are reduced when they cross jurisdictions, but we know by working together in a collaborative effort we can safeguard and protect our communities.”

 

The ultimate goal in the creation of the Arizona Border Strike Force is to deter, disrupt and dismantle transnational criminal organizations that breach the border in their quest to conduct criminal activity in our state. Specific units within the Border Strike Force Bureau include the Canine District, the Southern Investigations District, and the Vehicle Theft District.

 

For additional information related to the homicide, please contact the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies

MLB's Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Colorado Rockies

9/21, 6:40 p.m.
9/22, 5:10 p.m.
9/23, 1:10 p.m.

Times subject to change.


D-backs' hopes dealt setback by Rockies' rally

The D-backs hoped that the energy and good feelings from Wednesday night's win over the Cubs would carry over to Friday night's series opener against the Rockies. And when Arizona struck for two first-inning runs, it looked like it just might. However, the offense went quiet after that and the Rockies chipped away at the lead before putting together a decisive four-run rally in the eighth as they rolled to a 6-2 win at Chase Field.


Corbin looks to continue home roll vs. Rox

The D-backs continue their series with the Rockies on Saturday night with left-hander Patrick Corbin (11-6, 3.09 ERA) on the mound at 5:10 p.m. MST. For Corbin, who is a free agent this year, it could be his final start at Chase Field in a D-backs uniform. Over his last seven starts at home, he is 3-1 with a 2.28 ERA. Antonio Senzatela (5-6, 4.81) will start for the Rockies.


Approach-minded Walker finding power stroke

For a pinch-hitter like the D-backs' Christian Walker, a simple phrase sets the mental parameters for his approach off the bench. "Less is more."

The Single Guy Blog

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
