FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A Fall River man identified as one of the city’s top 10 most wanted fugitives was arrested Tuesday thanks to a tipster, according to the Fall River Police Department.
Luisceito Cruz-Dubois, 22, was added to Fall River’s Top 10 Most Wanted list earlier this month.
Police said the city’s lead detective, Derek Beaulieu, received a tip on Cruz-Dubois’ location, where he was taken into custody without incident.
Cruz-Dubious was wanted in connection with an Aug. 16 home invasion. He also faces single counts of armed and masked robbery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (pistol whip), assault and battery with a hypodermic needle, carrying a firearm without a license in public, possession of a class A drug (heroin), and a firearm violation with one prior violent or drug offense.
While arresting Cruz-Dubois, police seized a bag of MDMA, or Ecstasy, pills. Police said the pills were in the shape of “Spongebob Squarepants” characters, as well as the “Ferrari” emblem.
With the new school year beginning and Halloween quickly approaching, police are urging parents and guardians to keep an eye out for the pills in case they were distributed to children.
