HOUSTON -

A Cuban national wanted on charges of aggravated kidnapping, robbery, identity theft and other crimes has sent a letter to a Texas courtroom condemning the United States.

Fugitive Deimi Rodriguez, 23, taunts law enforcement authorities in the rambling two-page letter. There are also several anti-American sentiments.

"They say the United States is like no other, and they say they honor this country. I laugh at them," the handwritten letter states.

The letter has a return address in Havana, Cuba.

Rodriguez has been implicated in an identity theft ring that has so far netted two arrests, as well as a violent robbery where a man was kidnapped in Fort Bend county.

Four Texas counties have active warrants for Rodriguez.

Anyone with information is asked to call Houston Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
