City police arrest man sought on federal warrant

A city man has been arrested on a federal warrant out of California.

Miguel Angel Corraliza-Sanchez, 41, of 208 S. Beaver St. was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and heroin, and aiding and abetting on the warrant.

According to Dunkirk Police, investigation led to the location of Corraliza-Sanchez on March 15.

Police were able to locate Corraliza-Sanchez after being alerted to his warrant status by a routine vehicle registration check by patrol.

He was then brought into police headquarters where a “live-scan” fingerprint inquiry submission was made.

His fingerprints confirmed his identity and the active federal warrant.

Agents working the case in California commended the Dunkirk Police for its work and stated Corraliza-Sanchez was the only remaining fugitive at large in the investigation that led to 20-year federal prison sentences for other suspects in the case.

Corraliza-Sanchez was sent to the Chautauqua County Jail where he is being held for pick up by the U.S. Marshall Service.

He is the third person Dunkirk Police has picked up who has been wanted on federal warrants since March 8.
