Local Wanted Felon Escapes to Mexico
(Deming) – A man wanted on numerous charges forced a driver to take him to Mexico while being pursued by law enforcement officers.
Nineteen-year-old Gerardo Jaramillo was spotted by a Deming Police patrol officer Saturday night in the area of Maple and Juarez streets.
Jaramillo, who was wanted on charges including kidnapping, aggravated battery and robbery, allegedly forced two people in a vehicle to drive him from Deming to Palomas, Mexico, where he escaped from Deming Police, Luna County Sheriff’s and Mexican officers.

Their vehicle was returned by Mexican authorities who reported that Jaramillo had eluded them.
