WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Law enforcement has ended their search near Mayfaire for a suspect who ran while they were trying to serve warrants.

Bob Becker, Resident Agent in Charge with the US Department of Homeland Security says the warrants are part of a Immigrations and Custom Enforcement case.

Investigators say they were trying to serve warrants on two men who are known members of the MS13 gang. Becker says they took one of the men into custody, but another took off. He says the man they are looking for is Hispanic and has been deported a number of times.

Becker says the suspect is not believed to be armed. The search is now focused on woods behind Regal Mayfaire Cinemas.

Around 2:30 p.m., officers released a perimeter set up in a neighborhood behind the Harris Teeter in Mayfaire. Lockdowns at nearby schools were also ended.

Remember stories in the pass mentioning Cape Fear and surrounding counties being a corridor for the Mexican Drug Cartels.

The Cartels have used the assistance of Gangs like MS-13 (originating in El Salvador) in the past and present.

I agree with you, but since they have not there is something that they are not telling us. Why haven’t we heard a thing from law enforcement, some kind of statement? Why did the news give it 30 seconds? Something is fishy with all of this. 6+ hours of searching and nothing? BULL! My dog, my .40 caliber Glock and I would have found him inside of an hour. Homeland Security my ***. We need answers.
