    Police seek man

    on probation

    A convicted robber who allegedly fled from probation in Fair Haven is wanted on an arrest warrant ordered by a Rutland criminal court judge.

    Five months after Ruben R. Pacheco, 32, was released from jail, his probation and parole officer in Rutland says she hasn’t seen him in more than a month.

    Pacheco, who was sentenced to serve nine months of a four-year to eight-year jail sentence after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of assault and robbery in November, was released in December after receiving credit for time already served in jail. He was ordered to live at his brother’s home in Fair Haven but his probation officer said he has not been seen or reported to his probation officer since April 9.

    On Monday, Judge Theresa DiMauro ordered a warrant for his arrest and set bail at $50,000.

    Pacheco was convicted of robbing the Midway Mobil gas station on South Main Street in Rutland in March 2012. Rutland police said Pacheco and another man carried out the robbery with Pacheco approaching the cashier from behind and using his finger to imitate a gun pressed against the cashier’s back.
