She may be smiling in a photo APD sent to KOAT-TV, but 18-year-old Anna Bella Dukes is in a lot of legal trouble.
Police said her buddy, 17-year-old Adrian Avila, is too.
Both are wanted for multiple crimes including the death of former MDC corrections officer Elias Otero.
“Please call Crime Stoppers, these people need to get off the streets, they are dangerous and I don’t want this to happen to any other families,” Elias’ mother Alicia Otero said.
She said in February, her youngest son met Anna Bella on Snapchat. They went to a park where police say he was ambushed by a group of guys, robbed at gunpoint in his Lexus, then driven to his brother, Elias’ house.
The criminal complaint shows the carjackers had an AK-47 to Elias’ brother’s head.
They Facetimed Elias and said they would hurt his brother if he didn’t come out of the house with money.
The Oteros said Elias was protective of his family.
“My oldest son says we’re not giving them anything so he walked outside with his gun, he is a concealed carry license holder,” his mother said.
Police said Elias was shot right in front of his family. His little brother managed to get away from the carjackers.
The criminal complaint said the suspects used the same M.O. on another man the day before, with Anna Bella luring them on social media, only to be set up and carjacked.
As for Avila, the criminal complaint shows he’s no stranger to police and was part of another homicide investigation last year.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to their arrests. The number to Crime Stoppers is 843-STOP.
APD says there are also other suspects in this case.
