Tuscon, AZ -- In its first week, a new feature on KMSB's Fox 11 News at Nine called Southern Arizona's Most Wanted helped put a wanted man behind bars.
Rolando Hector Vasquez was wanted by the Cochise County Adult Probation Department. An alert viewer recognized Vasquez as someone she does business with after seeing him on the feature and contacted authorities. Two days later, on March 13, Vasquez was back behind bars.
"(FOX 11) performs a very valuable service for the communities of Southeastern Arizona." Livingston Sutro, Cochise County's Adult Probation Officer said in a statement. "I look forward to collaborating with (FOX 11) in the future in bringing fugitive probation violators to justice."
Southern Arizona's Most Wanted airs on the one-hour FOX 11 News at Nine on Mondays and Wednesdays. The feature includes local law enforcement agencies and details on wanted criminals throughout Southern Arizona.
