DPS raises reward for Most Wanted Fugitive, Mexican Mafia member


AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Department of Public Safety is reminding the public that the reward for a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive — and this month’s featured fugitive — has been increased to $15,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of January.

Anthony Gonzales, 45, is affiliated with the Mexican Mafia gang, is wanted for murder, engaging in organized criminal activity, aggravated assault and parole violation. In July 2008, Gonzales and other gang associates were allegedly involved in a shooting at a Corpus Christi residence that resulted in the death of one adult and the injury of two children.

Gonzeles is 5′ 6′ and was last known to weigh about 170 pounds. He may be known as “Ghost” and his aliases include Anthony Aleman Gonzales, Tony Aleman and Tony Guzman. 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.

All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

If you have any information, you should call 800-252-TIPS or submit a web tip through the DPS website, or through the DPS’ Facebook page.
