Police Chief William J. Bratton on Tuesday announced details of the arrest of a second member of the Los Angeles Police Department's 10 most-wanted gang members list -- the takedown of a murder suspect as he bought ice cream in Rosarito Beach, Mexico.

Steve Garcia, 43, was taken into custody Friday after a four-day surveillance by Mexican authorities and was taken to the U.S. border. There he was handed over to representatives of the U.S. Marshal's Service, who took him to the California Institute for Men in Chino because he had violated parole.
