According to the Department of Justice, a duo who allegedly invaded a home in Stockdale and robbed a man on Oct. 2 were arrested Friday in Galveston by the United States Marshals Service.
Police say Pedro Silva, 46, and Samantha Cunningham, 24, allegedly entered into the victim's home, tied up the victim and stole multiple items, including handguns and the victim's car.
After arrest warrants were issued for the duo on Oct. 7, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) initiated an investigation, determining that Silva and Cunningham had fled San Antonio to Galveston.
Officials found that the duo were hiding out at an apartment off of Avenue R in Galveston. When officers observed Silva and Cunningham leaving the apartment, the two were taken into custody without incident.
Upon arresting Silva and Cunningham, officers seized a .22 caliber handgun and multiple boxes of ammunition from Silva.
Silva has a violent criminal history, including homicide, assault and evading arrest. He is also a confirmed member of the Texas Mexican Mafia and was wanted on charges involving failure to register as a sex offender, according to DOJ.
Cunningham also has a violent criminal history which includes assault.
Silva and Cunningham are being held at the Galveston County Jail.
