HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — Holyoke Police are actively looking for a suspect they allege was involved in a 2013 murder.

Holyoke Police Lt. Jim Albert says that four arrest warrants have been issued in relation to the 2013 murder of Juan Quinones of Springfield.

Quinones was shot and killed near the intersection of Cabot and South Summer Street on June 2, 2013.

Three of those warrants have been served, and those suspects are currently in custody.

Albert says that Rolando Colon, 37, of Ware was arrested on Thursday in Harrisburg, Pa. on a warrant for murder, while 21-year-old Jose Santiago of Holyoke was arrested on Thursday in Holyoke and has been charged with murder, along with firearms and weapons charges.

The Holyoke Police narcotics unit also reportedly a .25 caliber semi-automatic handgun, Heroin, and marijuana at the time of Santiago’s arrest.

Joshua Santos, 26, of Holyoke is currently being held in the Ludlow jail on unrelated charges, and was charged with murder by Holyoke Police on Friday, Albert adds.

A fourth suspect, 24-year-old Jose Rodriguez of Springfield, remains at large. Investigators say that Rodriguez also goes by the name ‘Bugout.’

Albert explains that Rodriguez should be considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. If you see him, you are urged to call 911 immediately.

The investigation remains ongoing. If anyone has information related to the case, you are asked to call the Holyoke Police Criminal Investigations Bureau at (413) 322-6940.
