Raul Barrientes Captured

ALICE–U.S. Marshal’s officers captured one of Jim Wells County’s Most Wanted Criminals at a home in the Alice area.

Raul Barrientes, 30, was wanted on a motion to revoke and a judgment warrant from Jim Wells County.

Law enforcement officers received a tip Barrientes would be at a home on the 500 block of County Road 324 in Alice near Green Acres.

So U.S. Marshal’s officers staked out the home and waited for him to appear. On Tuesday morning, they saw him at the home and identify he was the wanted man.

Shortly before Noon, they raided the house and caught Barrientes without incident.

Barrientes was taken to the Jim Wells County Jail and booked around 12:20 pm. He is being held in jail without bond pending a court appearance.
