Police seek fugitive last seen near AZ/UT border

St. George police are warning residents not to pick up hitchhikers as officials search for a fugitive in southern Utah.

Authorities say they're looking for 27-year-old Christian Barroso, who apparently set his vehicle on fire early Thursday morning near Interstate 15, close to the Utah-Arizona border.

St. George police Sgt. Sam Despain says authorities found the burning vehicle a little before 3 a.m. Thursday, following a chase initiated by a Washington County deputy.

Police say they found remains of a high capacity magazine, handgun ammunition and a rifle inside the burned-out vehicle, but they didn't find a handgun.

Authorities searched for several hours, but haven't found Barroso.

He's wanted in California for a parole violation.  Police describe him as 5 feet 7 inches tall with black hair and brown eyes.
