New Sex Offender Added to New Mexico’s Most Wanted

Albuquerque, NM - The United States Marshals Service in New Mexico adds a new sexual offender to their Most Wanted List. Lorenzo Coriz (37) is wanted on a Federal Probation Violation. Coriz was convicted in 2007 for abusive sexual contact on Indian country after touching a minor under the age of fifteen in a sexual manner.

Coriz historically has worked in the heating and cooling industry in the Santa Fe area. Coriz can be identified by tattoos on both his arms. On his left hand, Coriz has a cross with flames between his thumb and forefinger. On Coriz’s right arm he has a warrior on the inner forearm. Coriz has connections on the Santo Domingo Pueblo and in the San Antonio, Texas area.

The Marshals Service will work with its law enforcement partners both locally and nationally to locate and apprehend the new addition. Annually, investigations carried out by the U.S. Marshals result in the apprehension of approximately 34,000 federal fugitives. More federal fugitives are arrested by the United States Marshals than all other federal agencies combined.

The Southwest Investigative Fugitive Team is a team comprised of law enforcement officers from New Mexico State Police, New Mexico Department of Corrections, Dona Ana County Sheriff’s Office, Las Cruces Police Department, Albuquerque Police Department, Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, Rio Rancho Police Department, Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Fe Police Department, San Juan County Sheriff’s Office, Torrance County Sheriff’s Office. The task force objective is to seek out and arrest all Violent Offenders. Last year, U.S. Marshals task forces arrested more than 27,000 state and local fugitives on felony charges.
