Man accused of running from police, providing false name


A man is in jail for allegedly leading police on a pursuit — and later providing them with a false name — in Northeast El Paso early Monday morning.

According to a news release, police responded to a “Man with a Gun” call at about 1:30 a.m. near the Villa Ciento Apartments located at 8604 Dyer.

Police say Adrian Abel Burciaga, 33, fled from officers in the apartment complex after being seen by a small SUV.

Burciaga ran away from police, but was arrested shortly thereafter.

According to the release, Burciaga gave officers a false name. An investigation revealed that he had the following outstanding warrants under his real name:

  • Two warrants for Possession of Controlled Substance >1 gram<4 grams
  • One warrant for Possession of Controlled Substance >4 grams<200 grams
  • One warrant for Unlawful Possession of Firearm by Felon

Police also found him in possession of 3.3 grams of methamphetamine and 2.5 grams of cocaine at the time of the arrest.

Burciaga was charged with failing to identify/fugitive from justice, evading arrest, possession of meth, and possession of cocaine. 

He was booked into the El Paso County jail under a $330,000 bond.
