Alleged Gang Member Arrested In Amarillo

KSCB News - June 27, 2013 9:59 pm

Another of the individuals identified in the Garden City Police Department’s investigation into alleged local gang activity, known as Operation Frontline, was arrested Saturday.

According to police, Victor Guzman, Amarillo, Texas, was arrested in Amarillo by the Potter County, Texas, Sheriff’s Office on a Finney County warrant for allegations of aggravated battery and incitement to riot.

Guzman was identified during Operation Frontline, which now has resulted in the arrests of 29 individuals, all believed to be associated with a local gang. Guzman is being held in the Potter County Jail until his extradition hearing, which will take place sometime next week in Potter County, according to Potter County Sheriff’s Deputy Ira Selman.

Finney County Sheriff Kevin Bascue said that during that hearing, Guzman will either sign a waiver of extradition or refuse to do so. If he signs it, arrangements to transport him back to Garden City will be made, Bascue said.

"If he refuses to (sign the waiver of) extradition, then the process to obtain a governor’s warrant will begin. Upon receipt of a governor’s warrant, we will make arrangements to transport him back to Garden City," Bascue said.

One other individual targeted as part of Operation Frontline, Joaquin Ceniceros of Ulysses, has not yet been located. He is wanted on an allegation of sale of cocaine.
