AUSTIN, TX - The Texas Department of Public Safety is reminding the public that the reward for Jerry Don Holmes, 42, has increased to $13,000 for information leading to this capture if the tip comes in during the month of June. The Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender and this month’s featured fugitive is wanted for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements, assault and bond surrender forfeiture. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Holmes has ties to several Harris county cities, including Pearland, Pasadena and Houston. He also has ties to Livingston (Polk County), Shepherd (San Jacinto County) and several Native American tribes in northeastern Oklahoma near Tulsa and Glenpool. Holmes has been known to work in the boating and trucking industries. His criminal history includes indecency with a child by exposure and assault.
Holmes is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs approximately 220 pounds. He has tattoos on his right arm, left leg and left hand; and a scar on his forehead.
One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured. All calls, texts, emails and Facebook tip messages are anonymous.
Anyone with information can provide anonymous tips in four different ways:
Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477). Text the letters DPS – followed by your tip – to 274637 (CRIMES) from your cell phone.

Submit a Facebook tip at http://www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).
