A federal arrest warrant was issued Wednesday in Tucson, Ariz., charging Maley with distribution of methamphetamine, aiding and abetting, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a press release.

Law enforcement officers went to Maley’s home in Tucson Sunday to arrest him, but he was not there, the FBI said.

Maley has ties to New Mexico, California, Colorado, Texas and Nevada and may be in one of these states, according to the FBI.

The 46-year-old is described as white. He stands 6 feet 1 inches tall, and weighs between 180 and 190 pounds, the FBI said.

Maley is bald, and has several tattoos on his arms, including skulls, a cross and lightning bolts. He may be driving an olive green Land Rover, Discovery Model, New Mexico license MSG-233, according to the FBI.

“He is considered armed and dangerous,” the FBI said.

The FBI urged anyone with information on Maley’s whereabouts to contact the Albuquerque FBI at 505-889-1300 (24 hours) or submit a tip online at https://tips.fbi.gov/.
