The Mesa Police Department has arrested three suspects in connection with a homicide that occurred on August 28, 2010 in Mesa. The suspects are Carlos Gonzales (22), Sylvia Sainz (20) and Dylan Noack (23).

On August 28, the trio went to 2940 E. Broadway to purchase marijuana from the victim, Leovardo Ortiz (28).  The drug deal had been arranged prior to their arrival for Gonzales and Noack to purchase the marijuana. However, when they arrived, Gonzales and Noack pulled out handguns and shot the victim. The drugs were taken and the suspects fled the scene.

Detectives had been following leads on the case since the night of the incident. Today, we are pleased that we have all of the suspects in custody.
