Reward Offered for Most Wanted Fugitive with Ties to Laredo and San Antonio

 

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Ramon Mendoza Jr., 45, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, and a cash reward of up to $7,500 is now being offered for information leading to his capture. Mendoza is affiliated with a Mexican cartel, and he is wanted for vehicle theft, engaging in organized criminal activity, theft of property and conspiracy to commit theft of property. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

 

Mendoza has been wanted since December 2016 in connection to a multi-agency investigation of a transnational criminal organization involved in the transportation of stolen vehicles from San Antonio to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. He has ties to Laredo and San Antonio. Mendoza’s criminal history includes assault, burglary of habitation with intent to commit assault, unlawful possession of a firearm by felon, theft of firearm, terroristic threat, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful restraint.

 

Mendoza is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs approximately 170 pounds. He has tattoos on his abdomen, back, chest, right shoulder, both arms and both legs. Mendoza may also be known by the nickname of “Mon.” For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin.

 

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s 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. So far this year, Texas Crime Stoppers has paid $21,000 in total rewards for anonymous tips that resulted in arrests.

 

To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the five following methods:

 

  • 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.
  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).
  • Submit a tip through the DPS Mobile App. The app is currently available for iPhone users on the Apple App Store and for Android users on Google Play.

 

All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted – and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender lists. You can find the current lists – with photos – on the DPS website

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
