Albuquerque, New Mexico - Standing approximately five feet six inches tall with a touch of gray scattered about his the black matted coiffure, you probably wouldn't think that Arlo Arcinas as a federal agent just by looking at him. He doesn't exactly fit the physical stereotype. But that's one of the things that makes him such a valuable asset. That and the skills that earned him a spot on the ICE National Pistol Team. He's been there so long, he was on the team before there even was an ICE.
