Chicago's Most Wanted Carlos Vigneri

Posted:

Forty-three year old Carlos Vigneri is just one of 25 Chicago area men federal and county prosecutors have charged with buying and selling guns and drugs in Chicago following an 18 month undercover investigation.

He's also one of three men who were no where to be found when police set out to arrest all of them in late July.

Federal prosecutors have charged Vigneri with selling more than two hundred grams of crack and powder cocaine. Some of which they say was sold to an undercover officer.

A few days after agents arrested most of Vigneri's co-defendants, they went looking for him in Berwyn. They went to a restaurant where they say Vigneri worked part time as a security guard. The restaurant is located at Harlem and Ogden. While Vigneri wasn't there, agents left what they call a "some what cryptic" note for him. It had only a first name and a cell phone number. A few days later, they say Vigneri got the message and called the number and left a voice mail message. Investigators say Vigneri apparently did not realize he was call calling an agent's cell phone.

In that voice mail, Vigneri indicates he isn't sure who he is calling and to let him know whether or not if that person is a friend of his.

While FBI agents are conducting a nationwide search for Vigneri, they believe he may be hiding in the Chicago area. They say he has friends and family here that may be helping him hide. They also say he could have fled state or country and "essentially he could be anywhere right now."

Investigators say Vigneri is Argentinean by birth but is a US citizen. Here is a brief description of what agents say he looks like. Vigneri is described as a Hispanic male, about five feet seven inches tall, weighing around 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. His last known address is in the 300 block of east Burlington Street in Riverside.

Vigneri is considered armed and dangerous.

If you see him, call police.
