BOAZ, Ala. (WHNT) — A wanted Los Angeles man accused of kidnapping was caught and arrested in Boaz on March 23.

37-year-old Wilman Juarez was booked into the Marshall County Jail just after 5 p.m. last Thursday.

Boaz Chief of Police Michael Abercrombie, Juarez was taken into custody for a drug charge when police realized he had active warrants out of California for kidnapping.
