A one-time Holmes­burg res­id­ent is be­ing sought by Phil­adelphia po­lice and the FBI for his sus­pec­ted in­volve­ment in a pair of armed car­jack­ings last month.

The car­jack­ings oc­curred at un­spe­cified loc­a­tions in the city on June 7 and 8. In each, Gu­ti­er­rez and sev­er­al ac­com­plices al­legedly threatened men at gun­point and stole their vehicles, wal­lets and mo­bile phones.
