Man captured in Ballinger following foot chase

SAN ANGELO, Texas (Concho Valley Homepage) — A man was apprehended in Ballinger after attempting to flee law enforcement on foot, as reported by the Runnels County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Sheriff Carl Squyres, the incident started on the afternoon of June 4 when a deputy pulled over a vehicle on Ball Avenue. The driver, identified as 39-year-old Daniel Orosco, was stopped after officers received reports of erratic driving on United States Route 83 as he entered Ballinger. During the traffic stop, the deputy spoke with Orosco and then returned to his patrol car to check his information. At that moment, Orosco exited his vehicle and ran into nearby brush.

Law enforcement officers searched for Orosco for several hours. Sheriff Squyres noted that at one point, the suspect was “down close to the Colorado River.” Despite their efforts, the initial search did not locate him.

Orosco was eventually found later that night after Ballinger residents reported seeing him “near their house.” The Runnels County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Ballinger Police Department, who then apprehended Orosco without further incident.

According to the public jail roster of the Runnels County Sheriff’s Office, Orosco was arrested at 11:33 p.m. on June 4. He was booked on a charge of “Absconding From Justice—U.S. Marshall Hold” and no bond had been posted at the time of publication.
