Man Convicted in Pasco Murder Wanted For Federal Drug Charges
PASCO, Wash.-- The federal government wants Martin Vaal Lopez for federal drug charges. Lopez was sent back to Mexico in May, after serving time for the murder of Beatriz Pullido Padilla.
Lopez is one of many people wanted in connection with several drug raids in the Tri-Cities and Spokane on October 1st.
"I'm sure there are other names that people may know of, or may know where they are at, so we certainly want the public to help at least apprehending these folks at this point," said Steve Lowe, Franklin County Prosecutor.
Lowe says he believed Lopez was involved with a drug ring, but the state murder charges were separate from federal ones.
Law enforcement agencies are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers. You can remain anonymous.
