DUNKIRK – The arrest of a 31-year-old federal drug fugitive was announced today by Dunkirk Police. Officials said Miguel Angel Corraliza-Sanchez, of South Beaver Street, was taken into custody at his Dunkirk home about 1:45 p.m. Friday after being traced there by Dunkirk police through a routine vehicle registration check by a police officer on patrol duty.

When he was taken to Police Headquarters a “live-scan” fingerprint check confirmed that Corraliza-Sanchez is wanted on a federal warrant from the U.S. District Court of Central California. He is being held in the Chautauqua County Jail pending his pickup by U.S. marshalls. If convicted, he faces a possible federal prison term of up to 20 years for his alleged role in a methamphetamine and heroin trafficking ring in California.
