The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office arrested two MS-13 gang members Monday, one of whom is wanted in connection with three San Francisco murders.
On Sunday, a federal immigration agent notified the sheriff’s office that Wilfredo Reyes, 31, also known as “Flaco,” was wanted for the murders and was possibly living in Salisbury, according to a release from the sheriff’s office.
In 2008, Tony Bologna, 48, and his two sons, Michael, 20, and Matthew, 16, were shot to death in their Excelsior neighborhood in San Francisco.
Monday morning, Rowan County detectives, the immigration agent and San Francisco homicide investigators went to the Salisbury house to arrest Reyes.
Officers also arrested Jose Antonio Mejia, 25, who was charged with harboring a fugitive and possession of cocaine. Mejia is also a member of MS-13 and an illegal immigrant from El Salvador. He was detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
Both were being held in the Rowan County Detention Center without bail. Reyes will be extradited to California. Lindsay Ruebens
