This is just me guessing but I think gang members are possibly easier to catch because they're gang members. They're not saying how Garcia was caught yet but sometimes there's no honor among thieves. Because they hang out with gang members, the element knows where they are. And 100 thousand smackers might be enough to violate the bro code.
Sex killers might be a little more isolated and under the radar since they may be a little less likely to associate with criminals themselves (although it wouldn't surprise me if Urbina especially was involved in the drug trade or some of your other good theories on him)

Garcia is now back in New York.
Also, I know some of us get anxious (myself) included when a slot is left open for a long time, but from what I understand it's a process. All field offices across the country submit fugitives for consideration and the FBI chooses someone for its list. I actually understand why it takes them so long. Besides breaking news cases, it makes sense to make sure to wait to take the necessary time to pick the right guy. Not to mention, it is not unprecedented to have to wait a long time in between additions. If I recall correctly, they didn't name Eric Toth as Bin Laden's replacement for about a year.
The US Marshals on the other hand, while I think they're doing an excellent job with their recent additions, does kind of frustrate me with its list sometimes. I understand it's the same process and more fugitives, but I can't recall the last time they had a full 15 on their list.
