CAPTURE DETAILS:

Eric MUNOZ, affiliated with the Tango Blast Valluco gang, was taken into custody on May 4, 2021. Working off investigative information, DPS Special Agents and Texas Highway Patrol located and arrested MUNOZ in Donna, Texas. In 2011, MUNOZ was convicted for a number of criminal offenses in Hidalgo County, including Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. In 2014, while released on parole, MUNOZ was convicted again for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, along with other criminal offenses. He subsequently was given four 7-year sentences and a 15-month sentence to be served concurrently in a TDCJ prison. He was released on parole again in 2017. MUNOZ had been wanted since October 25, 2020, after the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a Parole Violation warrant for his arrest. The arrest was not from tip information received through Texas Crime Stoppers, so no reward will be paid.
