Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive Arrested

Most-Wanted Fugitive Captured Just Days After Offering $7,500 Reward


Gilberto Ruvalcaba, 29, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive, is now in custody after being captured Tuesday morning in Houston. The Sureño 13 gang member was wanted for parole violation. The arrest was not the result of a tip and no reward will be paid.

Acting on investigative information, members of the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Violent Offender Task Force, including DPS Criminal Investigations Division Special Agents, located and arrested Ruvalcaba near a Houston residence where he is believed to have been staying. Texas Highway Patrol also assisted in the apprehension.

In 2011, Ruvalcaba was convicted in El Paso County of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and received a nine-year prison sentence. Additionally in 2015, Crime Stoppers of Houston added Ruvalcaba to its list of most wanted gang members. For more information, see his captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=317.

Ruvalcaba’s apprehension marks the first Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive arrest in 2016. Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, there are five different ways to provide anonymous tips:

 All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives featured in the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program. To view the current lists – with photos – visit the DPS website at http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.

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