Crime Stoppers Tip Leads To Another Arrest
Sex Offender Finally Back Behind Bars

LSFTF LogoDallas, TX – Bruno Keith Carmona, 32, was arrested this morning by the United States Marshals Service North Texas Fugitive Task Force (NTFTF) in Dallas, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the Bexar County Adult Probation Office, where it is alleged that Carmona failed to report and absconded from supervision and an additional arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO), where it is alleged that Carmona failed to comply with sex offender registration.

On December 11, 2013, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) initiated an investigation in the search for Carmona. Subsequent to the investigation, task force officers discovered that Carmona had previously fled from San Antonio, TX to Dallas, TX. The LSFTF then contacted the NTFTF in Dallas, TX for assistance in locating and apprehending Carmona. On December 17, 2013, task force officers received a Crime Stoppers tip that Carmona was hiding out with his girlfriend at a residence in the 600 block of Rayenell Avenue in Dallas, TX. This morning, task force officers conducted a brief surveillance, entered the residence, identified themselves, made contact with Carmona, and took him into custody without incident.

In 2011, Carmona was convicted and sentenced to 3 months in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) Intermediate Sanction Facility for committing indecency with a child by sexual contact. He was also ordered to serve an additional 10 years of probation upon his release. In July 2012, Carmona allegedly violated the conditions of his probation by failing to report and absconding from supervision. A warrant was issued for Carmona’s arrest soon after. In May of this year, an additional warrant was issued for Carmona’s arrest on allegations involving failure to comply with sex offender registration. Just 2 days ago, the Texas Department of Public Safety added Carmona to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list and a $3,000 cash reward was offered for information leading to his capture. Carmona was arrested this morning after a tip was provided through Crime Stoppers.

Carmona is currently being held in custody at the Dallas County Jail awaiting extradition to Bexar County.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, stated, “Another job well done, another sexual predator behind bars, and another Crime Stoppers tip that led to the arrest.”
