MIDLAND – A wanted fugitive is back behind bars in Midland after three months on the run.
24-year-old Gilbert Perez was arrested on Wednesday afternoon at a home on Storey Avenue by Midland County Deputies and U.S. Marshals.
Deputies say he tried to make a run for it when they showed up with a warrant, but he didn't get far.
Investigators say Perez skipped out of a hearing during a recess back in September.
So in addition to an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge, he's forfeited his bond and is back in jail.
