Chicago's Most Wanted: Pedro Cazares-Chavez

Posted: Updated:

Back in September 1996, Pedro Cazares-Chavez was arrested in Bolingbrook by special agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration. The FBI says he and his niece were caught with ten kilograms of cocaine after delivering the drugs to the Federal D.E.A. agents. Agents say a search of the niece's apartment in Chicago turned up another 39 kilograms of cocaine along with $160,000 sand dollars in cash hidden in the apartment.

Both Cazares-Chavez and his niece posted bond bail, but then never showed up for court. In March 1997 both suspects were convicted "in absentia" for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. They were each sentenced to 50 years in prison.

Cazares-Chavez is the subject of an international manhunt being coordinated by the Chicago FBI office. His last known addresses are in San Diego as well as Durango, Mexico. He also has connections in Phoenix, Arizona, Moreno Valley and Bakersfield, California as well as Chicago.

Agents hope someone out there knows where he is and will provide a tip that leads to an arrest.

Here is the best available description the FBI has of Pedro Cazares-Chavez:

  • 60 years old.
  • Approximately 5'5''.
  • 160 pounds.
  • Birthmark on his forehead.

He is considered dangerous. If you see him, you're asked to call police.

    Going off to college is an exciting time for the entire family, especially for the upcoming freshman. But with technology, parents can be in touch all the time. What's too much and what's just enough? Freshman move-in day seems to be harder on the parents than the students at Stony Brook University.
