BACKGROUND

In the afternoon hours of Aug. 21, United States Marshal’s Service Deputies received information that wanted fugitive Jennifer Crystal Acuna was staying at a residence in the 600 block of Dawn Loop in Clovis, New Mexico. Upon making contact at the residence, Acuna attempted to hide behind a chair.  She was located and taken into custody by the deputies without incident.

Acuna was wanted on a probation violation warrant stemming from a conviction for trafficking in stolen property and theft charges in 2018. Acuna is currently in the Curry County Jail in New Mexico awaiting extradition back to Yavapai County as her last known address was in the Chino Valley area.

Once again, law enforcement is reaching out and apprehending these fugitives wherever they choose to hide.  Excellent work by our partners at the United States Marshal’s Service bringing yet another fugitive to justice.
