Authorities Capture Joseph Camargo

Your tips have brought another one of NewsChannel 11's Most Wanted to justice.  Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputies made the arrest late Thursday morning, less than 24 hours after we profiled an accused sex offender.

Joseph Camargo, 19, is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a minor. He's accused of assaulting a girl, younger than 14 years old, in August of 2007, but authorities just issued a warrant for his arrest in October.

Around 11 a.m. Thursday, a tip to Crime Line led investigators to a home near 37th and Avenue E.  When sheriff's deputies arrived, they found Camargo, and took him into custody without incident.  "The tip we received came through Crime Line, and we believe it was in direct result of what was being put out through the media, specifically on NewsChannel 11 on Most Wanted from Wednesday night," Lubbock County Sheriff's Major Don Carter said. 

Camargo makes 22 captures in all, but we still have eight suspects on the wanted wall. Our law enforcement partners across the South Plains tell us all eight are still at large. You can help bring them to justice. Your call could lead to our next capture.
