The Texas Department of Public Safety says they have arrested two gang members who were on the top 10 most wanted fugitive list.

DPS arrested 43-year-old Edward De Los Santos in a hotel in south Austin along with coordination with the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and the Austin Police Department. Police say that De Los Santos is affiliated with the Tango Blast gang.

De Los Santos was wanted for continuous violence against the family, assault with injury, possession of a controlled substance and evading arrest/detention with a vehicle, according to police.

DPS also arrested 51-year-old Moises Calderon in an apartment complex in west-central San Antonio by members of the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, including DPS Special Agents. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice Office of Inspector General, the Office of the Attorney General, the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service-Dallas provided assistance in the investigation.


Calderon was wanted since Oct. 2020 after the state parole board issued a warrant for the violation of his parole. In 1991, Calderon was arrested for murder and later convicted and sentenced to 40 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison. He was released on parole in November 2014.
