CrimeFighters Manhunt: Ernie Romo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - The News 8 CrimeFighters are helping authorities in a countywide manhunt for a convict whose tattoos should make him easy to recognize.

Ernie Romo, 29, is wanted by state parole agents for violating the terms of his release.

Romo has a history of assault with a deadly weapon, domestic violence, vehicle theft and other theft-related charges.

Romo is Hispanic, 6 feet 1 inch tall, about 200 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. He has extensive tattoos, including his entire scalp, both sides of his neck and a large "Romo" tattoo on his stomach.

If you have any information, call San Diego Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-TIPS.

If you see this fugitive, remember, he's likely armed. Call police and do not approach him.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest. You don't have to give your name to be eligible for reward money.
