The actions of a quick thinking and observant CHP Officer has led to the arrest of an Oregon kidnapper– and the safe recovery of a small child.

On Saturday, September 1 at approximately 11:19 am, Eugene Police Department broadcast information of an Amber Alert issued in Oregon.

The Amber Alert information detailed a parental kidnapping that had taken place from the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) facility in Eugene, Oregon.

The subject, Angelo Luis Muniz, 47, of Lebanon, Ore., was suspected of abducting his 1-year-old daughter, Perfection Angelas, while on a supervised visit.  The information specified that Mr. Muniz suffered from mental disorders and substance abuse.

Oregon authorities suspected Mr. Muniz was enroute to Mexico and traveling down the redwood coast on Highway 101 in a 1991 Mazda pickup.

Humboldt Area California Highway Patrol Officer J. Bowen monitored these broadcasts and set up observation on southbound US-101 at Bracut, midway between Arcata and Eureka.

At 1:35 pm, Officer Bowen observed the suspect vehicle pass his location and he began to follow it.  CHP Officer P. Craft also responded nearby to assist.  They followed the suspect vehicle into Eureka on Highway 101.

Officer Bowen conducted an enforcement stop at the Target store parking lot in Eureka; however, the suspect and victim were not in the vehicle. The vehicle was occupied by two adult females: Lorie Garza Ramirez and Julie Christina Raas.

After obtaining information from the two females in the vehicle, Officer Bowen responded to Arcata.  After an investigation and search, Officer Bowen located Mr. Muniz and the abducted 1-year-old child, Perfection Angelas, at Redwood Park in Arcata.

Mr. Muniz was arrested on a warrant issued for the kidnapping.  Police also recovered the pickup Muniz was driving.

Julie Raas, one of the original suspected vehicle occupants, was also taken into custody on charges of delaying and obstructing officers during the investigation.

Perfection Angelas was taken into protective custody.  She appeared to be unharmed and in good health upon Officer Bowen locating her and is again in the protective custody of the Oregon Department of Human Services, the CHP release noted.
