ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - One of 41 people accused in a Chaves County methamphetamine trafficking case has been arrested after a pursuit by authorities.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/1NzyR1M) a Roswell police officer on Friday spotted a driver who appeared to be 36-year-old Ty Livingston. Federal, state and local authorities had been looking for him since results of an eight-month undercover narcotics investigation were announced in late September.

Thirty-four-year-old Joseph Ray Mendiola is accused of being the meth trafficking ringleader.

Chaves County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Livingston after a 30-minute pursuit. Authorities say he weaved through traffic and drove the wrong direction on a street.

It was unclear Sunday whether Livingston had an attorney. A federal indictment lists charges against Livingston that include conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.
