According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), Johnny Garcia, 35, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Texas Mexican Mafia gang member, is now in custody after being captured Friday in San Antonio. 

Garcia was wanted for parole violation and kidnapping. The arrest was not the result of tip information received through Texas Crime Stoppers, and no reward will be paid.

Garcia’s criminal history includes convictions for assault, weapons offenses and drugs. In 2009, Garcia also was convicted of assaulting a public servant (corrections officer) while he was incarcerated in 2006. He was paroled in 2014, and had been wanted since April of this year.

So far in 2016, DPS and other agencies have arrested 12 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including seven sex offenders and five gang members, and $18,500 in rewards have been paid for tips that resulted in arrests.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters must provide information to authorities by calling the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477), or text the letters "DPS" – followed by your tip – to 274637 (CRIMES) from your cell phone.

All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted, and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
