Catch 22 Day 4 Fugitive Caught

A Catch 22 fugitive is now behind bars. Acting on anonymous information, deputies with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office Eastern Command learned that Day Four fugitive Samuel Lucero III, who was wanted for Aggravated Assault with a Dangerous Instrument, theft of a vehicle, and Disorderly Conduct resulting from an incident in October 2022, was staying in a camper in the Verde Village just outside of Cottonwood.

On Thursday, after receiving information through the Yavapai Silent Witness tip line, YCSO deputies took Lucero into custody without incident. He is now in the Yavapai County Jail.
