WALTHAM (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts State Police have added five new names to the state's Most Wanted list. The list names at-large suspects of the most violent crimes committed in the state. The five people added to the list more than double its size.

The oldest name is the list is Mario Garcia, a Guatemalan native wanted for murder. He is suspected of killing a man outside an Attleboro Bank in 1991. Police say he fled the area and they've been searching for him ever since. He would be 49 years old today.

Alexander Keen Grant, is the next oldest fugitive on the list. He is wanted for allegedly getting a 14 year-old drunk in Yarmouth, and then sexually assaulting the teenager in 2012. Police said Grant did not show up for his court date in 2014, and has been on the run since then. State police say he may be altering his appearance.

The other three fugitives are accused of crimes from aggravated rape to murder, and some are considered armed and dangerous.

State Police Colonel Christopher Mason said at a press conference today that finding the men on the list was "for the greater good."

Colonel Mason said finding the men would bring justice to the victims and their families.

"They have killed, raped, or assaulted people before. We cannot give them the chance to do so again. We need to take them off the streets, to pull them out of the dark corners where they try to hide, to track them...wherever they run, even across borders and oceans," he said.
