ATF Most Wanted
This is an initiative by ATF in its continuing effort to combat violent crime in cooperation with other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies. In the past, ATF has successfully utilized other mediums to advertise wanted persons, and now, with the advent of the Internet, ATF is seizing the opportunity to employ Internet subscribers in this endeavor.
The following ATF wanted persons are the result of ATF criminal investigations, often in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, that resulted in the issuance of a federal arrest warrant.
Several criteria are considered before choosing subjects for the ATF Most Wanted list. They are as follows:
- Seriousness of the crime committed
- Past criminal record of the defendant
- Potential for the defendant to be a dangerous menace to society, based on the current or past charge.
- Belief that publicity afforded by the program will be of assistance in apprehending the wanted person

Francisco Rene MELGAR CABRERA
On the morning of 20 June 2009, Francisco Rene MELGAR-CABRERA and two other masked and armed males entered a Denny’s Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, forced the patrons and employees to the ground under threats of violence, and committed a robbery in which money and personal property were taken from restaurant employees. During the course of the robbery, a revolver possessed by one of the perpetrators was fired with the bullet striking a female restaurant employee and subsequently causing her death. During the robbery MELGAR-CABRERA brandished a loaded pistol while he ordered the restaurant employees and the patrons to the ground. MELGAR-CABRERA was illegally in the United States at the time of the robbery and was therefore prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition. All three perpetrators fled the scene of the crime. Two of the perpetrators were caught shortly afterwards; however, MELGAR-CABRERA eluded capture. USE EXTREME CAUTION: MELGAR-CABRERA should be considered armed and dangerous.
