Fugitives waive extradition, await pickup by Texas authorities.


LUDINGTON — The 27-year-old Texas man wanted on several violent charges who was captured by Mason County sheriff’s deputies last week is waiving extradition and is awaiting pickup by Texas authorities, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

The man has been identified as Bobby Robles Constancio of Van Vleck, Texas.

During the traffic stop, a passenger in Constancio’s vehicle, 30-year-old Ryan Thomas Baggett, of Calhoun County, Texas, was arrested on a marijuana possession charge, Cole said.

“During the investigation, it was discovered Baggett was also wanted out of Texas on a parole violation — original charges of controlled substance and attempted escape while armed. He, too, has waived extradition and will be turned over to Texas authorities.”

Mason County sheriff’s deputies captured the fugitives Thursday, Jan. 4.

“On Jan. 3, 2018, deputies with the Mason County Sheriff’s Office were contacted by members of the Bay City Texas Police Department and advised of a wanted fugitive from Texas that was believed to be in the Mason County area,” stated Cole.

“On Jan. 4, 2018 at 12:37 p.m., MCSO deputies spotted the suspect vehicle traveling on US 10 in the area of Meyers Road. A felony stop was conducted on the vehicle after learning the wanted person may have been armed with a handgun. No handgun was found.”

Constancio is wanted in Texas on charges of aggravated robbery (two counts); family violence; unlawful restraint; and assault with a deadly weapon.

The Ludington Police Department assisted deputies with the traffic stop.
