EL PASO – One person is $5,000 richer, because of a tip that led to the arrest of a wanted fugitive in El Paso.
Authorities arrested 41-year-old George Felix De Leon, a native El Pasoan, who has been hiding from police since 2006 for a parole violation.
De Leon's past charges include arson, shooting someone in the face and running a victim over with a car. These incidents all took place in the 1990's.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said De Leon was caught Friday morning in the 8100 block of Starr, which is in El Paso's Lower Valley.
