CMPD searching for man who cut off electric monitor

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is searching for a Charlotte man who cut off his electric monitor Saturday.

On condition of his release from jail, he was court-ordered on Nov. 16 to wear a monitor.

Police say Argueta-Fontanez was last seen in the 1200 block of North Tryon Street Saturday.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team at 704-336-8228 or 911.
