Texas 10 Most Wanted list offender captured in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- A prison gang member on the Texas 10 Most Wanted list who served time for attacking a guard has been arrested on parole violation and kidnapping charges.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Tuesday announced Johnny Garcia of Kirby was captured in San Antonio. The 35-year-old Garcia was caught Friday at a residence.

Records show Garcia's criminal history includes convictions for assault, weapons offenses and drugs. Garcia in 2009 was convicted of assaulting a prison guard three years earlier. He was sentenced to eight years behind bars, then paroled in 2014.

Investigators say Garcia was sought in Bexar (bayr) County in a kidnapping case in which a female associate was abducted. Further details on that case weren't immediately released.

Garcia had been wanted since April.
