AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Rojelio “Roger” Reyes, 32, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, and a cash reward up to $10,000 is now being offered for information leading to his capture. The Tango Blast gang member has a violent criminal past and is wanted for parole violation. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Reyes’ last known address was in Amarillo, and he has ties to the Dallas, San Antonio and Plainview areas. Reyes has worked in a variety of manual labor jobs. His criminal history includes unlawful possession of a firearm, robbery, evading arrest/detention and aggravated assault against public servant.
Reyes is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs approximately 185 pounds. He may be using the aliases “Roger” or “Doughboy.” He is also known to wear glasses and has the word “Reyes” tattooed on his upper back. For more information, see his wanted bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=225.
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. You can find the current lists -- with photos -- on the DPS website at http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.
Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
