Wanted by the FBI: New Top Ten Fugitive Santiago Villalba Mederos
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of Santiago Villalba Mederos, the newest addition to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
Mollie Halpern: The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to the arrest of this man—Santiago Villalba Mederos—the newest addition to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.
Mederos was 19 years old and a member of the Eastside Lokotes Sureño gang when he allegedly pulled the trigger in two separate fatal shootings in Tacoma, Washington in 2010.
Special Agent Terry Postma says Mederos murdered two people and seriously wounded a teenager while taking part in gang activities.
Terry Postma: He was very young at the time, and the fact that he was involved in two separate murders speaks to how violent he is.
Halpern: Mederos shot brother and sister Camille and Joshuah Love. Camille died. Their father, William, says he wants Mederos and fellow gang members held accountable.
William Love: They’ve taken something from my family that we can never get back for absolutely no reason. They’ve emotionally traumatized my son by him being shot and being on the scene, watching his sister die.
Halpern: Mederos—who is also known as “Pucho” and “Stretch”—has a tattoo on his left shoulder of the letter “S” and a tattoo on his right shoulder of the letter “E”.
Mederos has ties to Mexico and speaks English and Spanish.
If you know his whereabouts or have any information about this case, report tips to 1-800-CALL-FBI and tips.fbi.gov.
Postma: We as FBI agents are committed to capturing Mederos so that he can face the charges which have been brought against him.
Halpern: With Wanted by the FBI, I’m Mollie Halpern of the Bureau.
