AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today announced that tips regarding the Texas Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders can now be submitted through the social networking service, Facebook.

“By adding this new Facebook option to report tips, we are reaching a completely new audience and demographic, and we are hopeful this will help generate additional tips and make the process more convenient for our tipsters,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “We must continue to use traditional and innovative means to put these criminals, including sex offenders and dangerous gang members, behind bars before they have a chance to hurt anyone else.”

To submit a Facebook tip, go to http://www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted, and click on the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” Section) to provide anonymous information that could yield a cash reward if the tip leads to the arrest of the fugitive. If you “Like” the page, you will then get updates when fugitives are added or captured.

The Governor’s Criminal Justice Division provides cash rewards as high as $20,000 dollars for the current fugitives, who can be viewed at http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/texas10mostwanted/.

The current Most Wanted Fugitive list includes suspects with the following last known addresses:
•Pasadena
•Spring
•San Antonio
•Goliad (and Nueces County)
•Corpus Christi
•Weslaco
•Edinburg
•Abilene

Most Wanted Sex Offenders have last known addresses in:
•Houston
•Dallas
•Aubrey (Denton County)
•Grand Prairie
•San Antonio
•Austin (2)
•Whitney (Hill County)
•Moody (McLennan County)
•Lufkin

In addition to the new Facebook option, anyone with information can continue to provide anonymous tips in three other 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 web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture.

All calls, texts, e-mails and Facebook tips are anonymous, and tipsters will be given a tip number. You do not have to give your name.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives yourself; they are considered armed and dangerous.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives to feature on the Texas 10 Most Wanted lists.
