Murder suspect nabbed while playing 'Guitar Hero'

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Another of Charlotte's most wanted has been caught, nabbed while playing "Guitar Hero" in a Florida Wal-Mart.

Police say Raymundo Castaneda fatally stabbed his friend during an argument over a soccer game just before Christmas. They've been looking for him ever since.

A tip came in to Crime Stoppers on Wednesday, and Charlotte's Violent Criminal Apprehension Team tracked him to Jacksonville, Fla. That's where U.S. Marshals arrested him, playing "Guitar Hero" in a Wal-Mart.

"I think he was probably relaxed and thought maybe we'd stopped looking for him or didn't think we'd ever look for him down there," said VCAT Officer Tim Slater.

Charlotte homicide detectives are in Florida interviewing Castaneda. He'll go before a judge Friday morning and then likely be extradited back here in the next few days.
