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.”
