CAPTURE DETAILS:

Arnoldo ARANBULA, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender and affiliate of the Raza Unida gang, was captured on November 5, 2021, in Corpus Christi, Texas. Working off investigative information, DPS Special Agents along with Texas DPS Highway Patrol located and arrested ARANBULA. In 1998, ARANBULA was convicted of Possession of Marijuana after he was arrested at a U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint with 37 pounds of Marijuana. He was sentenced to 4 years' confinement. In 1999, ARANBULA was convicted of three counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child following incidents involving three young girls, ages 4, 6, and 7. He received three 5-year sentences to be served concurrently. ARANBULA had been wanted since December 15, 2020, after the Nueces County Sheriff's Office issued a warrant for his arrest for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. The arrest was not from tip information received through Texas Crime Stoppers, so no reward will be paid.
