SILVER CITY, N.M. (KRQE) – Silver City Police have arrested a fifth suspect in the arson at the police impound.
This summer, someone set fire to the police department evidence unit, burning a Jeep in a criminal investigation.
That Jeep belonged to Chris Murrillo. It was taken during a drug investigation. Police say surveillance video shows four men working together to commit the crime. They believe Murillo hired the men to do it.
The four men were arrested weeks after the crime. Now Murrillo has been arrested too.
