CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The FBI says Miguel Hernandez was a member of the Chicago-based cell of the Zetas Mexican drug cartel and his role in the organization was a courier.

Agents say he was responsible for transporting multi-kilogram quantities of cocaine for the gang in and around the Chicago area.

The Zetas are accused of bringing millions of dollars worth of cocaine to the Chicago area, and then shipping the proceeds back to Texas and then eventually Mexico. Last November, twenty members of the gang were indicted on various drug charges.

During the course of the investigation, which dates back to 2010, a joint task force involving federal, state and local law enforcement seized several cash shipments which totaled more than 12-million dollars. Two kilos of heroin and $480,000 cash were intercepted in November alone. The FBI says that is probably just the tip of the iceberg of their operation.

Agents say it's possible that with Hernandez's connections to the zetas cartel that he may have fled to Mexico to avoid prosecution.

But Hernandez also has connections in the Chicago area, so he could be hiding out in this area.

The FBI describes Miguel Hernandez like this:

Hispanic male, 21 years old.

Five feet six inches tall, about 185 pounds.

Black hair and brown eyes.

He also goes by the alias "Angel"

He is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him call police.
