LSFTF LogoSan Antonio, TX – Anthony Donell Roberts, 29, was arrested late last Friday evening by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio without incident. An arrest warrant was sought by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) Homicide Division, where it is alleged that Roberts committed first degree murder.

Last Friday, the SAPD Homicide Division contacted the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force to assist in the search for Roberts. Task force officers determined that Roberts was living at a house located in the 5700 block of Castle Brook Drive. Task force officers initiated surveillance and subsequently observed Roberts exiting the residence. Roberts was immediately arrested and taken into custody.

Roberts is currently being held in Bexar County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

On Thursday evening, it is alleged that Roberts and Shuwayne Green engaged in a violent confrontation. Roberts retrieved a .40 caliber pistol and shot Green in the abdomen. Green died a short while later at the hospital.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “It’s tragic when a life is taken due to selfless behavior and we can only hope that times will improve as the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force continues to take violent offenders off the streets and put them behind bars.”
