PECOS COUNTY – Pecos County officials are looking for a person of interest in connection with the death of a Pecos County man.

The Pecos County Sheriff’s Office is searching for 36-year-old Victor Lerma-Olivas.

Olivas is a person of interest in the murder of Luis Miguel Enriquez who was shot to death on the Fourth of July.

Officials say they received information that Lerma has left the United States and has crossed into Mexico. Lerma does have ties to Mexico, Texas and Colorado.

We’re told that Lerma has an outstanding felony warrant out of Pecos County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but that charge is from an unrelated case.

Lerma is considered to be armed and dangerous.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Victor Lerma-Olivas, you’re asked to contact the Pecos County Sheriff’s Office at (432) 336-3011.
