HESPERIA Sheriff's officials have released a photo of a man considered to be "armed and dangerous" who evaded arrest Thursday following a pursuit that uncovered a suspected identify theft and credit-card manufacturing operation in Hesperia.


Sergio Serrano, 36, is described as a 6-foot, 1-inch Hispanic man weighing 175 pounds, with brown hair and eyes, according to San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials.


Serrano is suspected to be one of three men deputies pursued after they sped away during a traffic stop Thursday night. Authorities chased the men to a home on Dukes Country Road, where the three fled on foot.


Deputies arrested Oscar Silverio Tejeda, 35, a known gang member from Long Beach, and a 17-year-old male. However, Serrano managed to get away and still hadn't been found as of Monday, according to sheriff's officials.


In the home, deputies said they discovered evidence indicating an identity theft and fraudulent credit-card manufacturing operation.


There is a $1 million warrant out for Serrano's arrest. Anyone with information about Serrano or the suspected ID theft case may call Detective Jarrod Burns at (760) 947-1500. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call WeTip at (800) 78-CRIME or visit www.WeTip.com.
