VADO, NM -- A man who has been on the run from law enforcement for more than a year was found hiding in a Vado home this morning, said Dona Ana County Sheriff's investigators.
Deputies arrested 21-year-old Robert Weatherly at a home on the 140 block of Swannack Road while responding to a call about a domestic disturbance.
Weatherly had been wanted on charges of aggravated battery against a household member since April of last year.
According to investigators, Weatherly's mother said she hadn't seen her son since February but eventually let Deputies into the home where they found Weatherly hiding.
Investigators say the victim involved in the incident that Weatherly was wanted for was also at the home, but denied ever calling the Sheriff's Department to report a domestic disturbance.
Weatherly was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention on a bond totaling more than $55 million dollars.
