The Yuma County Sheriff’s Department says they are on the lookout for a man they say is armed and dangerous. They say 30-year-old Jose Jimenez is wanted for fleeing from police after they arrived in connection with a verbal dispute in the 700 block of Vaughn Avenue Wednesday.
Jimenez fled from the scene when police arrived. Police believe he was in the possession of a handgun when he ran. He is described as six-foot-three inches tall and weighs about 225 pounds.
He is wanted on unlawful flight and an unrelated warrant. Jimenez was also involved in another verbal altercation near the Camelot Apartment complex.
Police searched for him for two hours but were unable to locate the suspect. The Sheriff’s Office says he should be considered armed and dangerous.
