TITUS COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas kidnapping and burglary suspect who has been on the run for six years has been apprehended in south Texas.
Back in 2011, Eric Alonzo Zaldivar-Orona was indicted for one count of kidnapping and six counts of burglary of a habitation in Titus County, according to the Titus County Sheriff's Office.
Officials got information that Zaldivar-Orona was hiding near the Texas-Mexico border. He was taken into custody in McAllen, Texas and booked into the Titus County Jail this week.
The sheriff's office says the charges stemmed from a Nov. 1, 2011 incident.
At the time of his 2011 arrest, a TCSO investigator attempted to pull Zaldivar-Orona over. He refused to stop and officials became involved in a pursuit.
They later found multiple electronic devices from burglaries in the area. He was arrested and posted bond. He failed to appear for court proceedings and has remained at large.
Zaldivar-Orona has been arraigned by a magistrate in Titus County. He remains in the Titus County Jail on $800,000 bond.
