Gilbert Flores Jr. was arrested in Broomsfield, Colorado on July 2, 2008 by the United States Marshal's Service. The suspect Flores is on parole with the State of Texas and was arrested in Lampasas for Possession of a Controlled Substance (methamphetamine), More Than 4 Grams, But Less Than 200 Grams, With Intent to Deliver. Flores then made bail and went on the run after not appearing in court. A Parole Warrant (or Blue Warrant) and a Failure to Appear Warrant were then issued for his arrest.
The Brownwood Police Department, Lampasas Police Department, San Saba Police Department, Hamrick's Bail Bond Service, and the United States Marshal's Office then went after the suspect Flores. A tip from an informant led the U.S. Marshal's Office to a location in Broomfield, Colorado and the suspect was then apprehended. Flores was transported to the Broomfield County Jail to await extradition to Texas.
The arrest of Flores shows two very important concepts. First, this arrest reveals the ability of other agencies to work together to accomplish numerous goals. Second, when you commit a crime and you owe the people of Texas, we will do all in our power to see you pay the bill. Numerous agencies are aggressively working to make sure that criminals pay for their crimes and not just pushed or dumped off on other counties or states.
