EL PASO, Texas – A man wanted for murder in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday at an El Paso convenience store by El Paso County sheriff’s deputies, who were assisted by OnStar, the popular car security device.

Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Jesse Tovar said Jerome Kinta West, 33, of St. Paul, Minn., was arrested about 6:40 p.m. at the Fast Track store and gas station, 1790 N. Fabens, by Deputy Eric Orozco, a field training officer, and Deputy Joe R. Rodriguez, a trainee who graduated just last week.

Deputies received information on West from sheriff’s dispatchers who were alerted about West’s location by the OnStar system in the white Pontiac G6 that West was traveling in, Tovar said.
