AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added James Anthony Rubio, 55, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list, and a $5,000 cash reward is now offered for information leading to his capture. In April 2012, Rubio was discharged from prison after serving a 20-year sentence. Sunday night just after 11:30 p.m., he cut off his ankle monitor and fled from the Travis County Residential Center in Del Valle, Texas. Texas Crime Stoppers tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Rubio, now wanted for felony Failure to Comply with Civil Commitment Requirements, is a sexually violent predator with previous military training and experience. Anybody encountering him should use extreme caution. He has relatives and friends living in San Antonio, but he may be headed to Mexico.

Rubio has served time in prison for sexually assaulting four different women, three of whom were in their 20s, while the fourth was 14 years old. During these offenses, Rubio threatened to kill his victims and/or their loved ones, punched the victims, and/or used scissors or other objects to prevent their escape.

Rubio can speak Spanish, earned an auto mechanics certificate from a vocational college, and served four years in the military.

Rubio is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 186 pounds. His tattoos include a rose/baby doll, skull, star, and cobra on his right arm; Marine Corps symbol and eagle/"JR" on his left arm; cowgirl, roses, unicorn, and spurs on his chest; and Mardi Gras masks on right shoulder. For more information, please view his wanted poster at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=168.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders. There are four different ways to provide anonymous tips:
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.
Submit a Facebook tip at http://www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

All calls, texts, e-mails and Facebook messages are anonymous.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender lists. To view the current lists--with photos--visit the DPS website at http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.

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