PRESS RELEASE: From Sheriff David Soward A suspected illegal alien from Mexico has been arrested by Atascosa County sheriff's deputies Tuesday evening for a murder committed in Fredericksburg Monday morning. Tuesday evening at 6:20, a caller reported a suspicious person on FM 3350 just east of TX Highway 16, 2 miles north of Jourdanton. Deputy sheriffs responding to the call located the man who subsequently admitted to killing his girlfriend in Fredericksburg the day before. Atascosa County County Sheriff's Office personnel contacted Fredericksburg and confirmed a homicide. Lieutenant Investigator Max Peralta was dispatched to the scene to investigate. The man admitted to Lt. Peralta he had strangled his girlfriend in a home in Fredericksburg before fleeing the residence. The suspect ended up in Atascosa County Monday evening and had been in the area at least 24 hours before being arrested. Texas Rangers from Gillespie County traveled to Jourdanton Tuesday night and the investigation is continuing in Fredericksburg. The subject is identified as Ramiro Garcia-Flores age 21, of San Pablo Queretaro, Mexico. He's presently being held in the Atascosa County Jail under a $1,000,000 bond pending being transferred to Gillespie County. Any further information would be issued from the Fredericksburg Police Department.

TELEPHONE SCAM ALERT This week we have received several reports from citizens with a 570 cell number prefix that have been receiving a call from individuals stating they are with PUBLISHER'S CLEARING HOUSE. The caller is telling the target they won over a million dollars and then proceeds to give them instructions and claims that a camera crew is on the way to their home. They also state they will accompany you to the bank to deposit your check and you're just required to pay them a small portion of the taxes. THIS IS A SCAM. Regardless of the details, anytime the caller ask for money, gives instructions to go to a certain place, etc., it is a SCAM. Anyone receiving such calls should simply hang up. Pleas pass this on to elderly family members and friends as well. #DoNotFallForIt
