U.S. fugitive arrested in Ensenada

     Authorities in Ensenada arrested U.S. fugitive Gary Roy Motz, 38, wanted in connection with a bank robbery, Mexican media reported. La Voz de la Frontera said it was the 113th international fugitive captured in Baja California this year.
     State officials have been complaining that even though they have arrested a large number of U.S. fugitives and violent crime has diminished, the U.S. State Department is still urging U.S. visitors to be cautious while traveling to Baja California.
