Most wanted Mexican national illegal immigrant criminal arrested in Texas; jail records him as 'white'

FORT WORTH, TX - Victor Hugo Chox Gonzalez, 38, an illegal immigrant and Mexican citizen listed as "the #1 most wanted criminal illegal immigrant" in Texas has been arrested on horrific charges of indecency with a child by sexual contact and aggravated sexual assault of a child after being arrested in Fort Worth.

In an interesting twist to the story, his jail records reportedly do not list him as Hispanic or Latino, but rather Gonzalez is listed in Tarrant County Jail records as "white."

As reported by The Blaze, Gonzalez is being held on $150,000 bail, and his arrest is merely the latest in a long line of criminal offenses including multiple illegal border crossings into the U.S., domestic assault, driving under the influence, and even "child cruelty causing possible injury or death."

In 2016, the suspect was deported following conviction on the assault charge against a family member and the DUI. Reportedly a child of 15 was a passenger in the vehicle at the time.

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) provided a more complete accounting of his history, adding, "In 2021, he was arrested for assault and failure to identify/giving false/fictitious information and bonded out of jail. Later that year, warrants were issued for his arrest for failure to identify/give false/fictitious information and failure to identify as a fugitive."
Texas Governor Greg Abbott hailed Gonzalez's arrest as a crucial victory. He wrote in a post to X, "Texas captures the #1 most wanted criminal illegal immigrant. He's now behind bars in Tarrant Co. We continue our search for the other most wanted."

Newsweek reported that in 2023 the Arlington Police Department issued warrants for Chox Gonzalez's arrest. Though a Mexican national, he has ties to Arlington and Pantego and is known under various aliases such as Victor Coronado Gonzalez, Arturo Sanchez, and Felix Lopez.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said that his arrest was "a result of investigative efforts and a series of leads by DPS Special Agents assigned to his case."
