Third time is the charm as twice-escaped Aguilar caught

 

 

 

by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer

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.
