DPS releases new Top 10 Most Wanted list

The Texas Department of Public Safety has released the new Top 10 Most Wanted list. The fugitives on the list are wanted for a wide range of crimes, including homicide, burglary, aggravated assault and indecency with a child by contact.

Texas Crime Stoppers will give a $1,000 cash reward to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of these fugitives. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of any of these fugitives should call 1-800-252-TIPS (8477). The Crime Stoppers hotline is open 24 hours a day. You do not have to give your name when calling.

DPS urges caution around these fugitives.

"Any fugitive should be considered armed and dangerous," said Col. Stan Clark, interim director of the DPS. "You should never attempt to apprehend these fugitives yourself."

For more information on specific fugitives or the crimes they are accused of, please contact the local police department in the area where the fugitive was last seen.
