U.S. marshals are looking for a convicted burglar who they say has little regard for the judicial system, and they are asking the public for information to help bring him into custody again.
Julio Cesar Solano, 24, was arrested in May 2011 for illegal possession of a handgun in Prince George's County while he was already on probation for a burglary conviction.
He was released but subsequently failed to appear in court for the new gun charge or the probation violation, but it doesn't end there, said Supervisory Inspector Matt Burke, of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.
In March, Solano was arrested in Prince George's County but blew off his court date to answer those charges, too, Burke said. That triggered a third warrant.
"It's seems as though he's been given a lot of chances and consistently makes the wrong decisions," Burke said. "We [would] like to have him back in the custody of the court before he gets a hold of another gun and makes another bad decision."
Solano has previous arrests for armed robbery and drug possession.
Solano, who's listed at 5-foot-8 and 143 pounds, has lived on University Boulevard in Langley Park, Greenbelt and Hyattsville.
Anyone with information should contact the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force at 301-489-1717.
Since 2008, federal authorities have credited readers of The Washington Examiner with the capture of 42 fugitives, including murderers, kidnappers, child sex offenders, rapists and scam artists. At least eight captured fugitives were convicted killers or wanted on a homicide charge.
Earlier this month, a reader's tip led directly to the arrest of a fugitive sex offender who impregnated a 14-year-old when he was 31.
The Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, run by the U.S. Marshals Service, is composed of 30 federal, state and local agencies from Baltimore to Norfolk. The unit has captured more than 33,000 fugitives since its creation in 2004.
