AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today announced that two individuals on Texas Most Wanted lists were captured this week. Texas Most Wanted Fugitive Fredrick Davis, 25, was captured Wednesday, Aug. 14 in Duncanville; and Texas Most Wanted Sex Offender Carlos Rios, 22, was also arrested Thursday by authorities in El Paso.
Davis, a known Crips gang member, was arrested on Wednesday when investigative leads led officers to a Duncanville residence where he was apprehended without incident. Davis was wanted for parole violation, burglary of a habitation and violation of bond/protective order. The arrest was not the result of a tip. The Texas Office of Attorney General and Duncanville Police Department assisted in the arrest. For more information, see Davis’ captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=210.
Rios was detained by Mexican authorities in Juarez, Mexico, on Wednesday. Thursday, he was turned over to the U.S. Marshals Service in El Paso. Rios was wanted for failure to register as a sex offender and violation of probation. This arrest was the result of a tip, and a reward up to $3,000 will be paid. The DPS Criminal Investigations Division, U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and El Paso County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation. For more information, see Rios’ captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=204.
