One Hobbs man learned the hard way that you can't hide a fugitive without getting into trouble yourself.

According to an affidavit, Hector Madrid helped Daniel Sosa, who is wanted for killing two people in Gaines County, hide from police.

A detective saw Madrid and Sosa come out of a motel room along with three other people and get into a van where they hid Sosa.

Madrid is now behind bars in Lea County.
