AUSTIN – Two of Texas’ 10 most wanted fugitives are back in custody after being arrested this week. Edward De Los Santos was captured on September 22 in Austin and Moises Calderon was captured on September 23 in San Antonio. Both arrests were the result of tips and Crime Stoppers rewards will be paid.

Edward De Los Santos, 43, from Austin, was arrested at a southern Austin hotel by members of the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, including special agents from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and officers from the Austin Police Department. He was added to Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list on September 2 and is affiliated with the Tango Blast gang.

De Los Santos was wanted for ongoing violence against the family, assault with bodily harm, possession of a controlled substance and evasion of arrest / detention with a vehicle. De Los Santos had previously been convicted of several counts of aggravated assault, burglary of a home and aggravated theft with a deadly weapon. For more information, see his captured bulletin.

Moises Calderon, 51, from San Antonio, was arrested at an apartment complex in west-central San Antonio by members of the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, including DPS special agents. The Office of the Inspector General of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, the Attorney General’s Office, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service-Dallas provided assistance to investigation. Calderon was added to Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list on September 8 and is affiliated with the Hermandad gang of Pistoleros Latinos (HPL).

Calderon has been wanted since October 2020, after the Texas Board of Pardons and Lyrics issued a warrant for violation of his parole. He was also wanted for assault causing bodily harm. In 1991, Calderon was arrested for murder and later convicted and sentenced to 40 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice jail. He was paroled in November 2014. For more information, see his captured bulletin.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of one of Texas’ 10 most wanted fugitives or sex offenders. So far this year, the DPS and other agencies have arrested 20 of Texas’ 10 most wanted fugitives and sex offenders, including eight gang members and nine sex offenders. In addition, $ 38,500 in rewards was paid for tips that resulted in arrests.

To be eligible for cash rewards, prognosticators MUST provide information to authorities using one of the following methods:

  • Call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
  • Submit a web tip via the DPS website by selecting the fugitive on which you have information and then clicking on the link under his photo.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking on the “SEND A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

All advice is anonymous, regardless of how it is submitted – and tipsters will receive a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators are working with local law enforcement to select fugitives for lists of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders. You can find the current listings – with photos – on the DPS website.

Don’t try to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
