Officers gave chase to Cantu and several law enforcement agencies including the Sweetwater P.D., the Nolan County Sheriff's Office (NCSO), Texas Dept. of Public Safety and the 32nd Judicial District set up a perimeter around a field near Alabama and Throckmorton.Officials with the NCSO said Cantu has at least two current felony warrants. Unable to locate Cantu, a convoy of police cruisers headed to a residence near the corner of Robert Lee and Mason to conduct a search of Cantu's girlfriend's apartment.Cantu was not there, however, and the officers tasked with finding him called off the search. Officers at the scene were confident it's just a matter of time before Cantu is taken into custody."He can run, but he can't hide," said Ray Cornutt, a detective with Sweetwater P.D.Sweetwater, TXBRIAN MCCORMACKLocal law enforcement agencies looking for suspectSweetwater Livingston, Walt Wilkins and others headline Third Annual West Texas and Beyond Revue2014-11-19T11:45:38-05:002014-11-19T11:45:38-05:00Copyright 2010 Sweetwater ReporterSweetwater, TXNo author availableBob Livingston, Walt Wilkins and others headline Third Annual West Texas and Beyond RevueSweetwater sets high goal for 2014 Goodfellows Food Drive2014-11-19T11:44:02-05:002014-11-19T11:44:02-05:00Copyright 2010 Sweetwater ReporterSweetwater, TXNo author availableSHS sets high goal for 2014 Goodfellows Food DriveSweetwater cutting held at Courthouse2014-11-19T11:42:45-05:002014-11-19T11:42:45-05:00Copyright 2010 Sweetwater ReporterSweetwater, TXNo author availableRibbon cutting held at CourthouseSweetwater events for Wednesday2014-11-19T09:08:42-05:002014-11-19T09:08:42-05:00Copyright 2010 Sweetwater ReporterInstructors will help you learn to read, improve your reading skills, improve your English skills or help you read to your children.
