MIDLAND - A New Mexico Top 10 fugitive is behind bars after being caught in Midland.

U.S. Marshals tell NewsWest 9 that the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force got information last Friday that 38-year-old Sergio Navarette was living in the Midland/Odessa area.

Investigators later determined that Navarette was working for a construction business under the alias of Carmelo Castillo-Mercado.

Investigators say that Navarette had been living in the Midland/Odessa area for approximately five years.

Navarette was arrested at his job on Monday. Navarette was wanted for failure to appear in connection with a charge of trafficking a controlled substance. Navarette also had previous convictions for aggravated assault and shooting at a dwelling.
