EL PASO TEXAS- On 10/11/13 the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Strike Team received notification of a fugitive taken into Federal custody at a residence in Evans, Colorado. The fugitive taken into custody is a male subject with outstanding criminal warrants out of El Paso County Texas under an alias name and DOB of ANGEL MARTINEZ (DOB: 01-05-72).
FUGITIVE/MARTINEZ had been eluding authorities for numerous felony theft charges and was known to be hiding in the borderland. Tips on Martinez’ whereabouts were followed up through surveillance and interviews where it was further discovered Martinez was using various alias names and dates of births.
During the course of the investigation, it was discovered Martinez was a deported felon back in 2005 with a history of trafficking cocaine and distribution of marijuana and may be the reason for eluding capture. It was also learned that Martinez was selling used vehicles locally. Deputies posing as a “buyer” were able to determine Martinez’ was residing in the state of Colorado.
The investigation continued with collaborative efforts amongst the Sheriff’s Office Strike Team, Department of Homeland Security(D.H.S./I.C.E., Denver Fugitive Operations Team) out of Denver Colorado and D.H.S. out of the El Paso Texas Field Office (B.E.S.t) which lead to the capture of a convicted felon on the run. Martinez is wanted for criminal offenses allegedly committed in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. FUGITIVE/Martinez whose true identity is yet to be determined, is sought for outstanding warrants out of El Paso County Texas under the name of Angel Martinez (DOB 01/05/1972).
