Chicago's Most Wanted: Paulino "Chino" Salazar

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Latin Kings are a major player in the drug trade in Chicago and Northwest Indiana, and after criminal charges were handed up by a grand jury, federal authorities were able to arrest many of the suspected gang members they were looking for.

But Paulino "Chino" Salazar disappeared and is now on the run.

Salazar was among 18 people charged with racketeering and conspiracy to distribute narcotics, specifically cocaine and marijuana, in Northwest Indiana and the Southeast portion of Cook County.

The indictment doesn't specify a particular role, but the FBI says Salazar was someone who had risen through the ranks of the Latin Kings and held a position of leadership within the gang.

He was charged with possessing handguns as well as being part of the criminal enterprise, so he is considered a dangerous individual.

The investigation turned up evidence that the conspiracy involved drug sales on the southeast side of Chicago as well as in Hammond Indiana and the surrounding areas.

The FBI says Salazar was known as the leader of the 99th Street Chapter in Chicago.

He was known to frequent the areas of 101st street and Avenue M, and 83rd Street and Baker Avenue in Chicago.

He has also been seen in Whiting, and East Chicago, Indiana. But the FBI is not limiting its search to those areas.

Here is the FBI's description of Paulino Salazar:

--Male Hispanic

--30 years old


--About 220 pounds

--Shaved head

--Brown eyes.

--Salazar also has a skin condition known as Vitiligo, which has resulted in irregular or splotch white patches around his eyes and mouth.

He is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him call police.
