US Marshals searching for felon in Austin area wanted for parole violation
The Lone Star Fugitive Task Force is looking for a man convicted of robbery that has disappeared from law enforcement.
Gary Garza is currently wanted to for not reporting to his parole officer after having served the majority of a 13-year sentence for a series of robberies.
The crime spree occurred in 1999 and after a few days of robberies, police arrested Garza and three other individuals.
"Specifically, with long weapons and shotguns and demanding wallets money jewelry personal items from the victims," said Supervisory Deputy Marshal Hector Gomez.
After being released from jail, Garza was reporting to authorities but at some point, he stopped reporting and authorities lost track.
"That poses the community in somewhat a degree of risk that is because Garza has been unaccounted for, for a couple of years," Gomez said.
He's believed to be in Manor or in the Austin area and authorities want to know what he's up to.
"There are a lot of unknowns out there until we can get Garza back into custody and investigate some potential issues that are out there," Gomez said.
If you have any information on his whereabouts call the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at 512-800-4213.
