Green Bay Police say they helped make arrests in connection to a Phoenix homicide case.

On Friday, January 12th, the Green Bay Police Department received a call from detectives with the Phoenix Police Department in Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix police were investigating a homicide. They said they had reason to believe a man wanted in the case might be headed to Green Bay.

The Green Bay Police Department Investigative Division and Community Police Officers, along with other agencies, were able to find the man matching the description of the suspect. The U.S. Marshalls then executed an arrest warrant and the man was taken into custody without incident. 

Phoenix detectives arrived in Green Bay and continued their investigation. According to police, another man in the house, the brother of the original suspect, was also arrested for his role in the homicide. After executing a search warrant for the house, as well as a vehicle, police say they found evidence of the crime. 

One of the men is a juvenile, but both are in custody.

Police say they are expected to be extradited to the State of Arizona to face charges of: First Degree Murder, Armed Robbery, Kidnapping, and Theft of a Motor Vehicle.
