DOB 3/18/76 AKA Mario B. Cruz. Hispanic male, 5’5″, 140 pounds. Social Security 637-02-0938, Resident Alien Card #A046178903. Tatoo of the Virgin Mary on an upper arm, unknown which arm.
Call 9-1-1 – Do not attempt to approach suspect – May be armed and dangerous!
The fact that we only have a poor quality photo of Mario which is older than 17 years ago is going to make this manhunt a difficult one. The one good clue we have is the tattoo of the virgin mary he has on one of his arms, I've heard of people having that tattoo on their chest or back, but the arm is a unique location for that type of tattoo.
