NEW BRAUNFELS — A joint operation by the Texas Attorney General’s Fugitive Unit, the U.S. Marshals Service’s Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and other state, federal and local law enforcement agencies successfully resulted in the arrests of 222 fugitives.

Officers with the Attorney General’s Fugitive Unit arrested seven fugitives wanted on charges ranging from sexual abuse of a child to burglary. Dubbed Operation Heat Wave, the crackdown targeted fugitives with outstanding state and federal arrest warrants.

Among those arrested in the roundup was 71-year-old Refugio Ortega of New Braunfels. Officers with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force arrested Ortega at his residence on West Plum Street on Wednesday and booked him on one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child under 14 years old.
