Quick Response Results In Effective Arrest
Fugitive Captured & Facing Sexual Assault Charges

LSFTF LogoNew Barunfels, TX – Rocky Leandro Orosco, 28, was arrested today by the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) in New Braunfels, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the Comal County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), where it is alleged that Orosco committed 2nd degree sexual assault.

Yesterday, the LSFTF was contacted by the CCSO for assistance in locating and apprehending Orosco. Today, task force officers, through investigative efforts, determined that Orosco was hiding out at a residence in the 1400 block of North Walnut Avenue. Task force officers conducted a brief surveillance and observed Orosco exit a vehicle and enter the residence. Task force officers entered the residence, identified themselves, and made contact with Orosco. Orosco attempted to flee, but was quickly apprehended and taken into custody.

On November 29, 2013, Orosco was allegedly involved in violently and brutally raping a woman in New Braunfels, TX. Yesterday, a District Court Judge of Comal County issued a warrant for Orosco’s arrest.

Orosco, a confirmed member of the Texas Syndicate gang, is currently being held in custody at the Comal County Jail.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “I’m proud of our task force officers who responded quickly, safely, and effectively to take another violent criminal off the streets. Yet my thoughts and prayers are with the victim, who should have never had to endure such a horrific experience.”
