After debuting in the Top 10 Most Wanted in Jim Wells County on Wednesday, a couple turned themselves in the same day, another individual was located in Laredo and a fourth individual called the department to get more information about his warrant, sheriff's officials said.
Sheriff's officials said 30-year-old Belinda Anguiano and Hector Anguiano Jr., 32, both wanted for possession of a controlled substance-cocaine charges, surrendered voluntarily to the sheriff's office on Wednesday. The Anguianos are currently in the Jim Wells County jail, officials said.
Jim Wells County Sheriff Oscar Lopez said that anytime they distribute information through the media, the results are positive.
"Through this program, it proves we can communicate through the media to get it out to the people, which helps the sheriff's department," Lopez said.
On Wednesday, the Jim Wells County sheriff's office in partnership with the Alice Echo-News Journal, published names and photographs of 10 individuals who were wanted for misdemeanor and felony warrants.
The Top 10 Most Wanted will be published every Wednesday.
Lt. Joe Martinez with the sheriff's department urges individuals with warrants to do the right thing and turn themselves in to avoid having their picture in the paper.
"Anybody that has any type of warrant or a simple citation is encouraged to turn themselves in," Martinez said. "You might be shopping at Wal-Mart or H-E-B and when you least expect it, one of us will be there to pick you up."
