Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a 22-year-old man who is believed to be tied to West Valley burglaries and possibly drive-by shootings.

Deputies were searching for a stolen white Ford F250 and gold Honda that reportedly fled Sun City West on Wednesday. A victim told officers that the driver of the Ford pointed a handgun at them and fled the scene.

Deputies apprehended the occupants of the Honda, but the Ford F250 got away. An investigation led officials to believe Efrain Felix, 22, was the driver of the Ford F250.

On Saturday, the Ford F250 was found in Buckeye and a search warrant found stolen property tied to multiple Sun City-area burglaries.

MCSO officials also found a sawed-off shotgun, handguns and other evidence that suggests the vehicle was used in recent drive-by shooting incidents.

Felix has yet to be located and MCSO says he is considered armed and dangerous. He is described as 6 feet tall, 175 pounds, has short brown hair and brown eyes.

He is known to have ties to the BCL and Sex Jerks gangs and has family ties in El Mirage and Buckeye.

If you see him, call MCSO at 602-876-1011. Do not make contact with him.
