By: Elena Arteaga

EL PASO, Texas -- Local law enforcement authorities are searching for a man who has failed to appear in court over a marijuana charge. 

El Paso County Sheriff's deputies said David Pedraza an an accomplice were found with 8.5 pounds of marijuana back in March of 2010. Deputies said Pedraza and the other suspect attempted to elude deputies, before the two of them were arrested in connection to the incident.

Pedraza has since failed to make court appearances, prompting the 120th District Court to re-issue a warrant of arrest for Pedraza. 

Deputies said Pedraza knows he is being sought, and is on the run eluding capture. Authorities believe Pedraza is hiding in the borderland area. 

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at (915) 566-TIPS (8477).
