AUSTIN -- The reward for Jimmy Ray McMillan, 42, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender and this month’s featured fugitive, has increased to $13,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of December. In 1988, he twice sexually assaulted a 9-year-old girl whom he was babysitting in Dallas. He is currently wanted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Texas Crime Stoppers tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
McMillan’s last known address was in Nacogdoches and he has family in the Dallas area, where he was born. He has also been linked to Springfield, Ohio, and Hot Springs, Arkansas. He has been known to work construction, roofing and carnival jobs.
McMillan is 5 feet 10 inches tall and was last known to weigh approximately 155 pounds. His tattoos include “TEX” on his right arm and “J+V” on his left arm, and he has scars on his abdomen and right forearm. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
For more information on McMillan, view his wanted poster at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=164.
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, e-mails 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 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).
The following link, http://bit.ly/VqydsJ, explains the steps on how to submit a tip regarding a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive or Sex Offender and/or how to receive a reward once the fugitive is captured.
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 ( http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/).
Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
