Details: Gwen KOMAHCHEET was added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted list on September 3, 2009. Although tips were received that placed him in Oklahoma for tribal meetings, this was never substantiated. On August 18, 2011, the Magistrate for the Courts of Indian Offenses issued a warrant for KOMAHCHEET's arrest and ordered the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Tribal Police to deliver him to the proper officials. However, he continued to elude capture.

On January 30, 2013, KOMAHCHEET was removed from the Texas 10 Most Wanted web site but was still considered a Texas Most Wanted fugitive. Information was subsequently developed that he was in Piedras Negras, Mexico, leading to his eventual arrest by Mexican officials on April 18, 2013. The following day, he was transported to the US Port of Entry at Eagle Pass, Texas, and turned him over to US Customs and Border Protection. He was then taken into custody by members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and transported to the Maverick County Jail.

KOMAHCHEET's location, arrest, and return was the result of coordinated efforts by Mexican authorities, the Texas Department of Public Safety-CID, US Customs and Border Protection, and US Marshals.
