CHICAGO — A previously deported Mexican man — who is a documented gang member and convicted felon with a violent criminal history — is on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) list of “Most Wanted” criminal aliens, and is believed to be residing in the Chicago area.

Atanacio Arellano-Gutierrez, 29, a previously deported convicted criminal, remains at large with his last known location in Illinois. Locating and arresting Arellano-Gutierrez is an enforcement priority for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) due to his violent criminal history.

Arellano-Gutierrez’s criminal history includes a 2005 felony weapons conviction in Cook County, Illinois, for aggravated discharge of a firearm for which he was sentenced to six years in prison. He also has felony burglary and retail theft convictions out of Kane County, Illinois.

ICE officers placed an immigration detainer on Arellano-Gutierrez while he was incarcerated at the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) Stateville Correctional Facility. He was released from IDOC to ICE custody April 16, 2013, and deported to Mexico May 1, 2013. ICE believes Arellano-Gutierrez illegally re-entered the U.S. and is now residing in the greater Chicago area.

ICE recently added Arellano-Gutierrez to its Most Wanted list and is actively seeking his apprehension.

“Our dedicated officers strive to make our communities safer by arresting convicted criminal aliens and removing them from the United States,” said Ricardo Wong, field officer director for ERO Chicago. “By focusing our resources on the most egregious offenders, we ensure the very best use of our resources while immediately improving public safety.”
