YUMA, Ariz. – Wellton Station’s Integrated Targeting Team and supporting law enforcement agencies arrested 42-year-old Francisco Armando “Pancho” Guerrero who was wanted on a federal probation violation Tuesday.

Guerrero’s federal probation violation originated from a previous charge of “high speed flight” from the Interstate 8 immigration checkpoint. Deputies from the United States Marshal Service, the Border Patrol Agents and officers from the Department of Public Safety and Yuma Police Department arrested Guerrero around 7:30 p.m. at a hotel in Yuma.

Guerrero has an extensive criminal history, which includes traffic violations, burglary, fraud, drug and paraphernalia possession, hit-and-run, and human and narcotics smuggling.
