LUBBOCK – Kevin Lee Stafford, 31, a governor (highest ranking leader) for the Gangster Disciples street gang and wanted fugitive, is now in custody in Lubbock after being arrested Thursday morning by the North Texas Fugitive Task Force, which includes the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).  Stafford was wanted for engaging in organized criminal activities related to a home invasion and murder of a rival gang member in Killeen earlier this year.

Stafford was discovered working at a construction site near Iola and 93rd Street in Lubbock, and was taken into custody without incident.  DPS Highway Patrol troopers assisted with the arrest. Stafford was released to the Lubbock County Detention Center and is being held on a $500,000 bond.  He is currently awaiting extradition back to Bell County, where the warrant originated. 

The Lubbock DPS Criminal Investigation Division (CID) was responsible for capturing 137 fugitives in 2012, and has captured 39 fugitives so far this year.  Since the formation of the North Texas Fugitive Task Force in March of 2012, the Lubbock and Amarillo offices have apprehended 567 fugitives.
