A Yuma gang member wanted on a felony warrant was arrested Wednesday at the Sun Vista RV Resort in Yuma, Arizona after a trailer-to-trailer search by Yuma police, Yuma County Sheriff deputies and Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents.

Aaron Quiroz, 22, a member of the Okietown street gang who goes by the name of Little Chief.

According to Yuma police, at about 6:26 p.m. Wednesday, officers spotted a white Toyota Camry driving recklessly through the intersection of 32nd Street and Avenue 8E, nearly colliding with three separate vehicles.

As the officers were pulling around in an attempt to catch up and conduct a traffic stop on the Toyota Camry, which was headed westbound on 32nd Street, the vehicle drove into the sandy desert area on the south side of the street in the 7700 block.

When officers pulled up, they saw the driver, now identified as Quiroz, running from the vehicle south through the desert, and began to chase him on foot. Quiroz ran into the trailer park at 7201 E. 32nd St.

Officers set up a perimeter on the trailer park and with the assistance YCSO and the Border Patrol conducted a trailer-to-trailer search of the RV park. Some trailers were temporarily evacuated for the safety of those residents.

Officers attempted to contact Quiroz using a P/A system, but he refused to come out from where he was hiding. They found him at about 10:45 p.m. hiding in a shed next to a trailer on the south side of the park. Quiroz was taken into custody without further incident.
