They say you can run but you can’t hide. On Nov. 24, Ruben “Cabrito” Aguilar’s running streak came to an end when he was apprehended by local law enforcement agencies.

According to Uvalde Police Department Lt. Mike Hernandez, the department received a tip that Aguilar was staying at an otherwise vacant home in the Uvalde Estates.

The information was turned over to the U.S Marshals Service who, with the help of UPD, Uvalde County Sheriff’s Office, and the U.S Border Patrol, arrested Aguilar.

Because Aguilar has a history of fleeing custody, more than 20 law enforcement agents were on the scene.

UCSO Deputy Marco Gonzales, who was first to arrive at Aguilar’s location, rammed the property gate with his vehicle to enter the residence.

Once on the property, he and Sgt. Gilbert Valdez spotted Aguilar attempting to exit the rear entrance of the home.

Former cactus-wielding suspect Ruben “Cabrito” Aguilar struck again, this time using a police officer’s Taser against him before once again escaping custody.

The incident occurred Saturday morning when Uvalde Police Department officers Ramon Morin and Greg Villa arrived at the Granada Apartments, 834 S. Getty St., to serve Aguilar with a warrant.

Aguilar was wanted for possession of a controlled substance and violating pre-trial release.

With the officers standing outside the complex, Aguilar reportedly jumped from a first-floor apartment window.

According to the police department, the two officers and Aguilar engaged in a brief scuffle. During the altercation, Villa attempted to use his Taser but failed to make contact with the suspect.

Aguilar fled on foot and Morin ran after him.
