CROWLEY, LA (KPLC) -

A speeding violation led to the arrest of a man wanted for murder in Houston, Texas, according to Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson.

Gibson said an officer working a traffic detail stopped the man for speeding on Monday.

Authorities had been searching for the man since December 2012, Gibson said.

"Once the officer discovered that the driver was wanted for murder, he used good judgment, waited for back up and took the suspect into custody without incident," Gibson said.

Gibson said 43-year-old Adrian Aguilar listed his last address as Douglasville, Pennsylvania.

"Citizens often wonder why police officers are direct when speaking with people especially on traffic stops. This is a great point that you never know who you are dealing with," Gibson said.
