A suspect being sought in connection with a 2012 homicide in Oklahoma City was apprehended in Pottawatomie County Wednesday, the sheriff's office reported.

Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer said Anthony Coldiron-Rangel, 23, was taken into custody following a felony traffic stop at SH 102 and SH 9.

A week ago, U.S. Marshals contacted local authorities about their search for that suspect, who reportedly has ties to the Shawnee and Pottawatomie County areas, including a relative living in southern Pottawatomie County, Palmer said.

Deputy Anthony Hopkins and Shawnee Police Officer Daniel Crisp were working information on the case, Palmer said, and there also had been a reported sighting of the suspect in Shawnee.

Deputy Hopkins on Wednesday determined the suspect's location at a home. Palmer said, and just as authorities were all responding to surround that home on Walker Road, the suspect left the area in a pickup.

Several deputies converged on the felony stop and took him into custody without incident. He was initially jailed in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center on outstanding warrants, Palmer said, but Oklahoma City police detectives also planned to interview him as part of the murder investigation involving the 2012 case.

As of Wednesday, there are no formal charges listed for him in Oklahoma County.

Palmer, who said the arrest was a great team effort, said a passenger in the pickup also was taken into custody for outstanding warrants.
