Pedophile Tracking Austin, TX Pastor Arrested

An associate pastor at Betania Baptist Church in east Austin wanted by authorities for the past two months has been arrested and charged with sexual assault of a child.

Fifty-nine-year-old Ruben Garcia, of Buda, was arrested by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at around 2 p.m. Monday on Torrington Street in Buda.

In April of this year, Nueces County issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with a 2015 sexual assault or a child investigation in Corpus Christi.

The task force also learned that Garcia had a warrant out for his arrest from Hays County. A grand jury indicted him on two counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of indecency with a child by sexual contact. The grand jury indictment is based on an investigation that began in early 2016.

Task force officers set up surveillance of Garcia’s church, Betania Baptist Church at 1117 Tillery St., where he served as an associate pastor.

“We would urge anyone having reason to believe their child or children may have been encountered inappropriately to contact their local law enforcement agency,” the task force said in a statement.

Garcia is in Hays County custody where bond has been set at $300,000.

Private Detective: Four Soldiers Arrested For Sexual Assault

KSP announced the arrest of four Kentucky National Guard soldiers following the investigation of sexual assault in Calloway County.

KSP said that they responded to Murray-Calloway County Hospital around 10:00 a.m. June 3 for the report of a sexual assault. They were able to take four suspects into custody later that same day.

They say that a preliminary investigation shows that the four were in Calloway County in preparation for weekend deployment. The preliminary investigation also shows that the victim was given alcohol and then sexually assaulted by the four suspects, according to KSP.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

The four suspects, who are all in Calloway County Jail, have been identified as

Anthony R. Tubolino, age 25, of Auburn, Kentucky, was arrested and charged with Second Degree Rape, Second Degree Sodomy, and Third Degree Unlawful Transaction with a Minor.

Tyler A. Hart, age 19, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, was arrested and charged with First Degree Sexual Abuse and Second Degree Sodomy.

Austin L. Dennis, age 21, of Munfordville, Kentucky, was arrested and charged with Second Degree Sodomy.

Jacob F. Ruth, age 22, of Munfordville, Kentucky, was arrested and charged with Second Degree Sodomy.

The National Guard assisted KSP during the investigation and has remained cooperative through the investigation.

“Sexual assault is not only a reprehensible act, it is a criminal act.  First and foremost our goal is to support the victim of this incident.  It is damaging to our morale, to our readiness and to our combat ability.  It has no place in the Kentucky National Guard,” said Maj. Gen. Stephen Hogan, Kentucky’s adjutant general.  “It goes against all the values we hold dear as service members in the U.S. Military.  The men and women of our organization are our greatest resource and we will do all we can to support the victim.”

The investigation continues.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555.  Citizens may also report tips anonymously through the KSP app.

Then, police say, Coates tried to take a 10-year-old autistic child from the same yard, but the child fought back by biting her.

Deputies say Coates told them she was trying to protect the kids from ‘viscious dogs,’ but they didn’t see any.

Coates is also accused of trying to punch a deputy and kicking him in the leg.

Police say that a woman’s home was ransacked by a burglar who also stole her credit cards.

Several months ago, detectives say that a man broke into a home on St. Phillips Drive through an unsecured window while the homeowner was at work.

Detective Mark Thomas with the Lexington Police Department said that the man took a laptop, money, jewelry, and a credit card that was used at the Shell Station on Richmond Road near the home.

The man was caught on surveillance video at the gas station.

“More than anything, this is just such a violation of someone’s privacy, this is their home,” said Detective Thomas. “This is somebody that works hard in our community. She was at her job, and she’s a good, upstanding person in the community.”

Detectives say that the man behind this break-in could be behind other break-ins and burglaries in the area around the same time.

If you have any information about what happened, your tip could get you a cash reward from Bluegrass Crime Stoppers. You can call in your tip at (859) 253-2020 or text your information to ‘CRIMES’. Just put “LEX PD’ in the message along with your tip.

Private Detective: Emails Show Conn’s Conditions to His Surrender

It has been almost two weeks since authorities say Eric C. Conn broke his ankle monitor and went missing.

His attorney, Scott White, has no idea where he is but says that Conn has made conditions to his surrender.

White said that he found out his client, who used to be known as Mr. Social Security, was on the run eleven days ago.

“I was stunned, because he had gotten such a great deal, it just didn’t make any sense,” said White.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

After pleading guilty in March to leading a fraud scheme that cheated the government out of more than $500 million, Conn was sentenced to 12 years.

White said that Conn felt he had received an unfair sentence compared to the two federal judges who were also in on the scheme.

“And in my view, it’s a legitimate complaint. Is it a reason to run? No. It’s something you deal with at your own sentencing,” said White.

One week ago, White began receiving emails from a man claiming to be Conn, who was using foreign servers to correspond.

“The problem is I can’t communicate with him. I reply to those emails, of course, they bounce,” he said.

Conn’s conditions listed in those emails include for the FBI to publicly state Conn fled because he felt his sentence was unfair compared to the judges, that Conn is non-violent, that he will not be charged with any additional crimes, and to turn himself in to the Kentucky FBI Special Agent.

“Even though he did what he did, he has always been someone that has always done what he told me he was gonna do before,” White.

The emails did not indicate when exactly Conn will turn himself in.

There is a $20,000 reward for anyone who has information that leads to Conn’s arrest.
