AUSTIN -- The reward for Anthony Gonzales, 40, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and this month’s featured fugitive, has been increased to $20,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of January. Texas Crime Stoppers tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Gonzales, a known Texas Mexican Mafia gang member, has a violent criminal history and is currently wanted for murder, engaging in organized criminal activity and aggravated assault related to a 2008 incident in Corpus Christi. On July 25, 2008, Gonzales and nine gang associates were allegedly involved in a shooting that resulted in the death of one adult and the injury of two children. All of the suspects have been captured except Gonzales.

Gonzales is 5 feet 6 inches tall and was last known to weigh approximately 170 pounds. His aliases include “Ghost,” and he has worked in upholstery jobs in the past. He has multiple tattoos, including “Lil Laura” on his left finger; “Mexicano” and a female figure on his abdomen; and multiple tattoos across the base of his neck and upper chest. For additional information and photos, see his wanted bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=114.

One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured. All calls, texts, emails and Facebook tip messages are anonymous.

Anyone with information can provide anonymous tips in four different ways:
•Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
•Text the letters DPS -- followed by your tip -- to 274637 (CRIMES) from your cell phone.
•Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture.
•Submit a Facebook tip at http://www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

The following link, http://bit.ly/VqydsJ, explains the steps on how to submit a tip regarding a Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitive or sex offender and/or how to receive a reward once the fugitive is captured.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders ( http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/).

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
