LORDSBURG, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected in a Massachusetts homicide has been taken into custody in New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police say they received information early Thursday that 27-year-old Gilfrey Gregory may be travelling through the state in a vehicle with a Florida license plate.

A State Police officer located a vehicle on Interstate 10 west of Lordsburg.

After a high-risk felony traffic stop on the vehicle, authorities say Gregory was taken into custody without incident.

Police say five juvenile passengers in the vehicle with Gregory were placed into the custody of New Mexico Children Youth and Family Department.


Gregory, of Springfield, was booked into the Hidalgo County Adult Detention Center on an arrest warrant out of Massachusetts.

Police didn’t disclose details of the murder case.
