Wanted Fugitive is Back in East Texas

by Ramonica R. Jones

A wanted fugitive who has been on the run for months is now back in Angelina County.

Jose Ulises Tapia was extradited to Lufkin from Louisiana after authorities there caught up with him. He took off after a shooting in Diboll last spring that left a man badly hurt.

Tapia is in the Angelina County jail facing burglary and assault charges. His bond is a total of $20,000.
