Department of Corrections officers in the Tri-Cities say a dangerous gang member known as ‘Wizard’ has pulled off a vanishing act.

Jose Herrera was convicted of assaulting a Franklin County Sheriff’s deputy.

Now, he’s breaking probation on the crime that ignited when he ran from a traffic stop. It was winter, so deputies followed his footprints in the snow to a trailer park where ‘Wizard’s’ disappearing act didn’t work this time. He was hiding inside a vehicle and when they tried to arrest him — he attacked — grabbing a deputies arm, kicking him and trying to punch him until a second deputy had to help get him cuffed.

Herrera’s massive rap sheet also has busts for robbery, thefts, hit and run and multiple assaults.
