HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A murder suspect from Miami, Fla. was nabbed in Butler County Thursday.

Sheriff Richard K. Jones says the arrest was the result of a newly formed Highway Interdiction Team that was formed when the Countywide Narcotics Task Force, known as BURN, went into effect.

The team observed traffic violations while traveling northbound on Interstate 75. During a routine traffic stop, the subject was identified as Anthony Pagan Gomez, 24.

Gomez was found to be wanted for murder in Florida.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office is working with Miami Dade County to arrange extradition back to Florida.
