FBI wants Big Apple's help in catching 10 most wanted criminals
Every day the FBI is hunting for dozens of fugitives who have committed crimes in the city.
Ten of the most-wanted criminals range from serial bank robbers to woman wanted for domestic terrorism to a case that dates back 30 years. Regardless of the nature of their crimes, FBI agents say they all are dangerous and need to be brought in immediately.
"The 10 fugitives here are wanted by the FBI and we welcome the public's assistance. If anyone knows the whereabouts of any of these fugitives -- if you believe you have seen one of them -- please contact the FBI," Agent Kelly Langmesser said in a statement.
Aubrey Lee Price
Price, 42, allegedly committed a multimillion-dollar investment scheme while he was a director of a southern Georgia bank that he masterminded from Manhattan. The FBI said he illegally transferred $21 million from one of the bank's subsidiaries to security accounts he controlled between January 2011 and last June.
Price allegedly fled after telling friends he lost money through trading activities and was going to kill himself. He was last seen in Florida on June 16.
Rene F. Ramirez
The 30-year-old Mexican national is wanted for allegedly possessing child pornography. Ramirez, who used to live in the Bronx, trafficked the porn via computers between June 2007 and June 2009, the FBI said. Although federal authorities have not seen him since a warrant was issued against him in 2011, they say he frequents social networking sites.
Semenov, who has at least 10 aliases, is allegedly part of an Eastern-European cybercrime ring that was operating out of New York. The Russian-born fugitive, who is between 26 and 32, allegedly recruited money mules to open bank accounts, cashing out money received through unauthorized money transfers, and then sending the money overseas.
He has not been seen since his September 2010 warrant, but he may be trying to get lucky in Las Vegas casinos, the FBI said.
Cornell Russell Bull
In December 2009, the U.S. attorney general's office charged Bull with narcotics distribution conspiracy. The 58-year-old Belizean was allegedly part of a major cocaine ring that operated out of Manhattan, smuggling hundreds of kilograms of dope from Los Angeles.
Bull, who has a scar on his left wrist, allegedly received his drug shipments from the Colombian-based Galeano Cartel and delivered the contraband throughout the New York City area.
The FBI says Guzman is wanted for his role in a cocaine network that operated out of Washington Heights. The 40-year-old Dominican who has been on the run for five years, allegedly brought in hundreds of kilograms of cocaine from Atlanta.
The Mexican ring, called the Gulf Cartel, allegedly supplied the drugs to Guzman, who may have fled to his native country.
Tuil, who used to live in Queens, is a former real estate agent turned federal renegade, according to the FBI. The 41-year-old is accused of running a housing scam where she would get straw buyers to purchase houses, the FBI said. She allegedly also got people whose houses were in foreclosure to transfer the deeds to their houses to her.
Tuil would then use the deeds to obtain mortgages and sell the homes to straw buyers. She has been wanted since 2010 and may be living in Israel.
Black Glove Bandit
The unidentified suspect, who has a taste for sophisticated fashion is wanted for two armed robberies in Apple Banks in Brooklyn last year. The fugitive stole cash from a branch on 218 Albany Ave. on Feb. 1, 2011 and robbed another at 414 Flushing Ave. six days later.
In the second incident, the suspect, who is described as a 50-year-old black man, 6 feet tall with a medium build and salt-and-pepper facial hair, was seen wearing black gloves, a brown trench coat, a brown fedora and sunglasses.
A serial bank robber who stole from five Queens branches between 2009 and 2010 is still on the streets, the authorities said. The suspect -- described as a black man, between 6 feet and 6-feet-3 inches tall, and about 185 to 200 pounds -- allegedly hit up the storefront banks that were along the Cross Island Parkway
In most occasions, the fugitive wore a ski mask, entered through the rear door and took out a gun from a plastic bag before demanding cash.
Jaime Alberto Macias
The FBI has been searching for Macias, 49, for nearly 20 years in connection with the murder of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter. He allegedly beat the girl to death while he was baby-sitting her at the mother's Far Rockaway home on July 30, 1993.
Although he was indicted in Queens Supreme Court on criminally negligent homicide in 1994, he has never faced prosecution.
Donna Joan Borup
Borup is the subject of one of the longest and most prominent New York searches. The suspect, who is between 60 and 65, was arrested for allegedly throwing an acidic substance into the eyes of a Port Authority police officer during an anti-apartheid demonstration at JFK Airport in 1981.
The officer was left partially blind.
Borup, who was part of a militant Marxist-Leninist organization, didn't show up for her trial in Queens on assault charges and has since vanished. Finding her has been a top priority for the FBI.
"It's been 31 years, but the police officer, who was attacked by Borup and partially blinded, deserves justice," Langmesser said.
