Persistence Leads to Fugitive’s Arrest
Suspect Facing Charges for Parole Violation

Marion, TX – Aaron Gomez was arrested yesterday by members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) on charges involving violation of parole conditions.

Gomez, 28, was wanted by the New Braunfels Police Department (NBPD) after a warrant was issued for his arrest last month. Gomez was allegedly involved in a shooting and as a result, members of the LSFTF were requested to assist in his apprehension. On Tuesday, taskforce officers observed Gomez sitting in a vehicle at an EZ Pawn Shop in New Braunfels, TX. Gomez was ordered to exit the vehicle, but fled the scene at a high rate of speed and avoided apprehension.

Yesterday afternoon, task force officers continued their search and located Gomez sitting in a vehicle at a house located in the 1500 block of Marion Road, in Marion, TX. Gomez attempted to evade arrest yet again, but was quickly subdued and taken into custody.

Gomez is currently being held in custody at the Comal County Jail.

Despite the tactical training, extensive planning and safety measures taken to effect every arrest, apprehensions don’t always happen as expected,” said U.S. Marshal Susan Pamerleau. “Yet deputies and task force officers remained persistent and continued their search until the arrest was finally made.
