Chicago's Most Wanted: Roco "Rocky" Cervantes

Posted: Updated:

Roco Cervantes, who is also known as Rock or Rocky, was charged in a criminal complaint earlier this year with conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine. It was part of a complex investigation the FBI worked on together with Chicago police and other law enforcement partners that started in November of 2012.

According to the charges filed in the case Cervantes was identified as a cocaine supplier, conspiring with his brother, and selling cocaine to another drug dealer who has been charged. The FBI says the drug deals took place between November and April, and according to the complaint, Cervantes is alleged to have sold nearly 500 grams of cocaine. The transactions are said to have been conducted in and around the Back of the Yards neighborhood on Chicago's near southwest side.

Cervantes is a Mexican national with strong ties to the Chicago area, where he has family, as well as to Mexico. The FBI is hoping a Fox 32 News viewer sees him or knows where he is, and contacts police. There is a reward for information that leads to the arrest of Cervantes.

Here is the FBI's description of Roco Cervantes:

--Hispanic male

--41 years old.

--5' 10''

--About 180 pounds

--Black hair

--Brown eyes

Cervantes has several tattoos, including one of a grim reaper on his right arm and a cross on the inside of his lower left arm. He has been known to drive a black 2000 Chevy Express full-size van with silver decals on the side, or a white 2007 Buick Terraza minivan.

Roco Cervantes is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him call police.
