Police are seeking an “armed and dangerous” parolee with an active warrant for assault with a deadly weapon.

According to a release from the Ridgecrest Police Department, officers are seeking Robert Anthony Martinez. Martinez also has an active warrant for kidnapping false imprisonment, terrorist threats and other charges. Police say Martinez frequents Inyokern and Pearsonville as well as Ridgecrest.

RPD Sgt. Anthony Brown confirmed that the search for Martinez is unrelated to the reported drive-by shooting earlier this month. However, the second suspect in that incident is still at large.
