SAN DIEGO - A man and a woman wanted in connection with a felony crime in Houston were in custody in San Diego Wednesday after being found sleeping in a Kearny Mesa parking lot, police said.
10News learned that officers spotted a suspicious van at a Target store parking lot on Othello St. between Interstate 805 and state Route 163.
10News cameras showed officers leading a man into a patrol car.
San Diego police officers searched the license plate and learned that the van was connected to a felony in Texas. In addition, the van and anyone found inside were wanted by police.
Two people -- a man and a woman in their 30s -- who were sleeping in the van were taken into custody. Police would not say who was in custody but did say the man matches the description of someone wanted for murder.
10News learned that the van is registered to a person wanted in connection to a murder.
10News believe the van is registered to Adam Gouy. fter searching the name, 10News learned it matches a person of interest in a gruesome murder in Texas. Back in July, Samuel Delaschott was shot in the head in a Burger King parking lot.
No one seemed to know why a well-liked business man with a squeaky clean record would be killed.
Detectives from Houston were en route to collect the suspects, police said without elaboration. They told 10News they are working on a case involving Gouy.
