April 19, 1999|HOLLY J. WOLCOTT

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department is asking the public's help in locating four fugitives wanted on suspicion crimes that include selling marijuana and failing to appear in court. Warrants have been issued in each case.

Reymundo Arroyo, 38, is wanted on suspicion of possession, sales and transportation of marijuana.

He was last known to have lived in an apartment in the 1800 block of Buyers Street in Simi Valley and had a previous address on Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys.

Arroyo is Latino, 5 feet 9, 190 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes. He has a small scar above his right eye.

Catalina Rodriguez, 45, was arrested on suspicion of burglary. She was released from jail on her promise to appear in court, but failed to do so, authorities said. At the time of her arrest, Rodriguez gave deputies a false name and date of birth, they said.

After she was released, her identity was determined and records indicate she has an extensive criminal record for drug crimes and thefts and has been in prison, according to the Sheriff's Department.

Rodriguez uses a different identity each time she comes in contact with law enforcement, deputies said.

She is Latina, 5 feet 3, 160 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes.

Domonic Michael Mele, 35, who also uses the first names Niko and Nick, was convicted twice of possessing drugs and has violated his probation, authorities said.

Mele last lived on Reposo Drive in Ojai.

He is white, 6 feet 2, 190 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. He has a red devil tattooed on his left shoulder.

Maria Angeleri, also known as Maria Durand, 48, was arrested last July on suspicion of forgery. She bailed out of jail but failed to appear in court, authorities said.

She was arrested again last September by Los Angeles police and again posted bail. She appeared once in court in that case but then failed to meet future court dates, authorities said.

Her last known address was an apartment in the 7000 block of Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys.

Angeleri is Latina, 5 feet 1, 140 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She has a scar on her wrist.

Anyone with information about these suspects should call Ventura County Crime Stoppers at 385-TALK or 494-TALK.
