The reward for Anthony Gonzales, 40, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and this months 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 Governors 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.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governors 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/).
Not enough for me to bother. Add two zeros and I will pull favors and resources to get him...
Hey! I LIVE in Corpus! Doubt he’d still be in town, though.
If you see him, do not try to apprehend him. He is heavily armed with assault rifles provided courtesy of Obama’s Fast and Furious program.
If they really wanted to get this guy, they would offer the 20,000 in a Wanted Dead or Alive Post.
