Amarillo, Texas - Police need your help finding an Amarillo man wanted for several felony charges. Police say he has a violent past and now his newest charges have been enhanced because of this.
30-year-old Rosalio Jeremiah Chacon is wanted out of Potter County for assault and injury to a family member and for interference with an emergency phone call. Corporal Sean Slover of the Amarillo Police Department says, "If you have a previous conviction on some type of criminal act, you can actually enhance it. Like this one would be a Class-A misdemeanor and it got enhanced up to a felony offense because of a person's susceptibility of becoming more and more violent over time. It's a way to get their attention and making them sit their time a little longer."
Police tell us another warrant has been issued today against Chacon, for credit card abuse, in which an elderly woman is the victim. Chacon is 5'8" and weighs about 190 pounds.
