ABC13 coverage helps FBI catch featured gang fugitive

CAPTURED: Carlos Romero, 30, was wanted on a federal firearms charge.


Just days after we featured him as our StopHoustonGangs.org Fugitive of the Week, the FBI tells us they've caught a gang member wanted on federal charges.

Investigators say media coverage led Carlos Romero to turn himself into authorities on Monday. Romero, 30, was wanted on a federal firearms charge and a known member of the Tango Blast Gang.

He was of more than two dozen suspects named in a federal indictment unsealed last week. The indictment was the result of a four-year investigation into what the FBI calls the Texas Mexican Mafia.
