Details: Ricardo ZUNIGA, a Barrio Azteca gang member, was added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list on March 31, 2010. He had been wanted for Homicide since June 2009 by the El Paso County Sheriff's Office for his involvement in a stabbing and shooting incident in El Paso. After remaining on the list for 22 months, ZUNIGA was removed once extradition paperwork was filed to extradite him from Mexico. On June 6, 2012, ZUNIGA was arrested at a residence in Juarez, Mexico, by Mexican police. Officers from the Texas DPS Criminal Investigations Division, US Marshals Service, and El Paso County Sheriff's Office subsequently took custody of him at the Stanton Bridge in El Paso without incident.
