Oscar Suarez

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — One of Wisconsin’s most wanted has been captured thanks to a tip from a FOX6 News viewer.

We told you about 34-year-old Oscar Suarez in early August. For year, U.S. Marshals search for the fugitive who was indicted on cocaine charges.

Investigators say they tried to take the high-level dealer into custody in 2009. But he vanished from his Racine home.

A FOX6 News viewer saw Suarez’s profile and gave U.S. Marshals a description of his home and his car near La Paz, Mexico. Law enforcement across the border used that information — and took Suarez into custody.
