U.S. Marshals Arrest Two California Parolees Suspected of Murder

Springfield, OR - Yesterday afternoon at 12:30 PM, two fugitives wanted in California for Parole Violations and as suspects in a Homicide, were arrested in Springfield, Oregon by the U.S. Marshals Oregon Fugitive Task Force (OFTF) and Springfield Police Department (SPD). Robert Reil, a 30-year old male, and Amour Villamora, a 30-year old female, were arrested on “U” street in Springfield.

The investigation began in the City of Orange (Orange County, CA.) after Villamore and Reil were believed to have been involved in a robbery that took place on January 3, 2010 at approximately 10:50 PM during which one individual was shot and killed. The investigation led authorities in California to believe that the two suspects were either fleeing towards, or currently located in Oregon.

The OFTF joined the chase on January 12, 2010, and with the help of the Springfield Police Department, they gathered information leading to the location of the two fugitives in Springfield. When the OFTF and Officers moved in for the takedown, Reil was apprehended as he ran out the back of the residence and Villamore was found hiding in a bedroom closet.

The U.S. Marshals Oregon Fugitive Task Force is comprised of investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Portland Police Bureau, Oregon State Police, Multnomah County Probation & Parole, Clackamas County Probation & Parole, and the Oregon National Guard.
