A 33-year-old man faces multiple charges after U.S. Marshals say he was arrested Tuesday morning in San Marcos.
Authorities said arrest warrants were issued pursuant to investigations by the Comal County Sheriff's Office, where it is alleged that Angel Gabriel Aleman failed to comply with sex offender registration and by the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office, where it is alleged that Aleman failed to appear on burglary and theft charges.
In 1999, U.S. Marshals said Aleman was convicted and sentenced to 5 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison for committing indecency with a child through sexual contact.
Upon his release from prison, Aleman was ordered to comply with sex offender registration, which authorities said he allegedly violated in October of this year. A warrant was issued for his arrest and he was listed as one of Comal County's ten most-wanted fugitives.
In January of this year, Aleman was indicted in Guadalupe County on two separate counts involving burglary of a habitation and one count involving theft. Authorities said Aleman was released on bond and ordered to appear in all court proceedings.
Aleman allegedly violated the conditions of his bond when U.S. Marshals said he failed to appear before a judge in the Guadalupe County District Court. A warrant was issued for his arrest in early September.
On Nov. 7, the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was contacted by the CCSO for help in finding and apprehending Aleman.
Tuesday morning, task force officers, through investigative efforts, determined that Aleman was hiding out at a Knights Inn Hotel in San Marcos.
After task force officers conducted a brief surveillance and saw Aleman exit a hotel room, authorities said the officers identified themselves, made contact with Aleman and took him into custody without incident.
If convicted, Aleman faces imprisonment of two to twenty years on the burglary charges and 180 days to two years on the theft charge, officials said.
"Extraordinary job by members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force for tracking Aleman down," said Robert R. Almonte, U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Texas. "From one county to the next, task force officers stayed on his heels and now he will finally answer to the crimes he allegedly committed."
Aleman is currently being held in custody at the Comal County Jail and U.S. Marshals said he could possibly face additional charges.
