A sex offender wanted on 18 counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child is behind bars after his arrest last night at an international bridge in El Paso.

An investigation by DPS Criminal Investigations Division agents and the U.S. Marshals Service--aided by two tipsters--located 51-year-old Jose Manuel Vasquez in Porvenir, Mexico. Mexican authorities apprehended Vasquez and turned him over to DPS and the Marshals Service at the Stanton Street Port of Entry. The $3,000 cash reward will be the most ever paid out for a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender arrest.

Vasquez ultimately will be transported to Potter County and is wanted in both Potter and Randall counties on a variety of charges, including the 18 counts of sexual assault against children ages 7 to 9. In addition to the sexual assault charges, Vasquez was also wanted for failure to register as a sex offender and for violating probation after an indecency with a child conviction.

Each tipster will receive $1,500 from Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Criminal Justice Division of the Governor’s Office.

The 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders are available on the DPS website at <
and have last known addresses in the following cities:

· Houston (3)

· El Paso

· Austin

· Lufkin

· Grand Prairie

· Whitney

The public should not try to apprehend these criminals as they are considered dangerous. Anyone with information on these offenders can provide anonymous tips in three 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 tip through the DPS website by selecting the sex offender you have information about, and under their picture is a link to submit a web tip.

The program identifies violent sex offenders who have either violated parole or failed to comply with sex offender registration.
