The Tri-City Herald says Kennewick Police’s Criminal Apprehension Team stopped a car Deleon was in on Wednesday night.
Police said they found meth on another man in the car, and a third man arrested — the driver — had a suspended license.
FUGITIVE WANTED IN THE TRI-CITIES August 16, 2013 –
Department of Corrections officers in Benton County say Antonio Deleon is a wanted gang member known to abuse women, who fancies himself to be a ladies man, and has a deep disrespect for the law.
He’s street-named “Pelon” or “Bald” — and he’s missing in the Tri-Cities now.
“He’s a high-violent offender who’s been convicted of almost every crime in the book: Obstruction, disorderly conduct, harassment and DUI are only a few of the crimes he’s committed. He’s not a fan of law enforcement, and has a nasty habit of abusing women,” Christina Lacy with the Department of Corrections said.
Officers say the dangerous drugs that fuel many of “Pelon’s” crimes include meth.
He’s 47-years-old and is inked with a woman’s face on his forearm. He’s believed to be hiding in Benton County.
If you know where Antonio “Pelon” Deleon, is tonight, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
