SO DETECTIVE EL PASO COUNTY, TX The MANHUNT is on for 2 individuals wanted for an Aggravated Kidnapping which occurred in Horizon City, TX in September 2009.

On September 3, 2009 at 3:40 PM, Detectives from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Person Section were summoned by the Horizon Police Department to 14327 Desert Sunset, Horizon City, in El Paso County, Texas, regarding an Aggravated Kidnapping. The victim, identified as Sergio Saucedo DOB/02-28-1979, was forcibly taken from his residence at gun point. Mr. Saucedo was later found murdered in Juarez, Mexico.

On November 6 2009 a warrant was obtained for Ricardo Morales for Aggravated Kidnapping with a 1.5 million dollar bond. He is still outstanding and investigator’s continue to look for him. It is believed Morales orchestrated the Kidnapping.

On Tuesday February 16th a warrant for Aggravated Kidnapping was obtained for Cesarusborderpatrol Obregon. Yesterday Omar Obregon was spotted by a Border Patrol Agent with his brother Cesar Obregon attempting to enter a home illegally. Both brothers were detained by Border Patrol it was then discovered that our office had an outstanding warrant for Cesar Obregon for the Aggravated Kidnapping of Sergio Saucedo, and that we believed Cesar’s Brother Omar was also involved.

Border Patrol subsequently brought both brothers to the Sheriff Department HQs where further investigation led to the arrests of Omar Obregon and Cesar Obregon. Both Obregon brothers were booked into the El Paso County Jail last night on Aggravated Kidnapping charges. The Sheriff’s Office has also obtained an arrest warrant for a 4th man involved in the Aggravated Kidnapping who was identified as Rafael Vega. Sheriff’s Detectives are hot on his trail actively looking for him. It is believed the Obregon brothers along with Rafael Vega were the persons who committed the kidnapping.
