March 2, 2018 — Investigators with the San Angelo Police Department are issuing a multi-state request to help locate a couple awaiting trial for a 2015 case of elder abuse that led to the death of a 77-year old San Angelo woman. 

On March 30, 2015, the San Angelo Police Department began investigating the death of Edna Adian, who died due to neglect under the care of Ramon Ricardo Garcia, 58, and Debra Lee Garcia, 60.  Both were indicted for Injury to the Elderly (Causes SBI/Death) and were set to go to trial in March of 2017; however, the couple fled San Angelo.

Ramon Garcia may seek medical treatment for ongoing health issues and he may have lost a substantial amount of weight in recent months.  

IDENTIFIERS:

Ramon Ricardo Garcia (DOB 03/25/59), Hispanic male, 5’08”, 245 lbs., brown hair, hazel eyes, tattoo upper left arm. 

Debra Lee Garcia (DOB 01/06/58), Hispanic female, 5’05”, 112 lbs., brown hair, brown eyes.

If you have information about their whereabouts, call: Local contact- Detective Jake Russell (325) 659-8016.  Outside San Angelo- call local law enforcement.  To remain anonymous, tip online at http://bit.ly/SAPDTips247 or by text: text TIP SAPD to 888777 and follow the prompts.

San Angelo Police Discover Much More than Identity of Calvert Collision Hit and Run Driver, Thanks to Social Media Tips
Feb 28, 2018   04:03 PM

On Tuesday, February 27, 2018, San Angelo Police received a report of a hit and run crash that occurred on February 26, 2018 at Calvert Collision Center, 3003 S. Bryant Blvd.  The crash, which was captured on surveillance video, shows a man driving a red Ford F250 with a white camper shell backing into a sign pole and then driving off the property without notifying the owner.     

The video, which was later published on the Departments Facebook page, solicited several tips that all named the driver as Carl Ramage, 46, of San Angelo.  Upon hearing Ramage’s name, Hit and Run Investigator Steven Quade recalled a separate hit and run crash that had been reported on February 26 — a crash in which Ramage was listed as the victim that claimed his truck was damaged by a pickup truck driven by a Hispanic female who fled the scene.  

But local tipsters were not the only ones that contacted Police after watching the Facebook video — Ramage also contacted the SAPD and later verified the hit and run Incident he reported was, in fact, fabricated. 

As a result of these investigations, Ramage will be charged with Failure to Stop and Leave Information Duty on Striking Structure, Fixture, or Highway Landscaping and False Report to Peace Officer.
