Fugitive Watch is proud to announce the capture of Fugitive George Valenzuela after being featured on Fugitive Watch Television Program, making him the 502nd fugitive to be apprehended. An anonymous tip from a Fugitive Watch viewer led California state parole agents, Department of Justice Violence Suppression Agents and Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement Agents to his hideout on Chemult Common Drive in the Warm Springs District of Fremont, California. Agent Eric Phan reports that Valenzuela was arrested without incident after his house was surrounded. The California Department of Corrections was seeking George Valenzuela on a warrant charging him with Parole Violation. Agents report that Valenzuela was released from prison after being convicted of failing to register as a sex offender. He had allegedly absconded parole supervision and was considered a parolee at large.
