The FBI is offering up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest of reputed MS-13 enforcer Efrain “Caballo” Vasquez-Yanez, a convicted felon on the run from federal RICO and drug charges.
The 34-year-old native El Salvadoran was last seen in Everett in July and is believed to still be in the Boston area, FBI officials said.
Vasquez-Yanez, described as having a tattoo of the Grim Reaper, as well as a skeleton, on his right arm, “is known to have ‘homeboy’ status within MS-13,” the FBI said. “To achieve homeboy status, gang members must commit a murder and/or inflict serious physical injury in the name of MS-13.”
“Due to the aggressive, violent, and impulsive nature of MS-13 gang members, the FBI believes Vasquez-Yanez poses a serious danger to the public and we’re asking anyone with information about his whereabouts to contact law enforcement,” said Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division. “Concerned citizens can play an important role in capturing fugitives by coming forward with whatever information they might have.”
