Atanacio Arellano-Gutierrez | U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement

U.S. immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are looking for one of their most wanted fugitives, who may be back in the country and living in the Chicago area.

Atanacio Arellano-Gutierrez, 29, is considered at-large with his last known location in Illinois, according to ICE.

Arellano-Gutierrez has felony convictions for burglary, theft and weapons charges, ICE said. He was sentenced to six years in prison for a 2005 conviction for aggravated discharge of a firearm in Cook County.

He was deported to Mexico in 2013, officials said, but they believe he has since re-entered the country illegally and moved into the Chicago area.

Arellano-Gutierres is 5-foot-6 and 135 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair, according to ICE.

He has multiple tattoos, including “RIP Reyna” on his right forearm; “Carolina” on his upper right arm; “”L.R.Z.” on his right leg; and six dots on his right index finger.

Anyone with information should contact ICE at (312) 347-2400.
