AUSTIN -- The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Jesse Cruz Jr., 49, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list, and a cash reward up to $3,000 is now being offered for information leading to his capture. Cruz, a violent sex offender, is wanted for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Cruz has ties to the San Antonio area, which was his last known address. In 1993, Cruz was convicted of indecency with a child by sexual contact after an incident in Bexar County involving a 12-year-old girl. His criminal history also includes aggravated assault with deadly weapon and unlawful carrying of a weapon. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDe

Cruz is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 255 pounds. He has a large tattoo on the right side of his neck, a small tattoo near his right eye and various other tattoos. He has prior work history with moving companies.

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.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, there are five 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).
•Submit a tip through the DPS Mobile App. The app is currently available for iPhone users on the Apple App Store: ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/texas-dps/id902092368?mt=8) and for Android users on Google Play: ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microassist.texasdps&hl=en).

All tips are anonymous -- regardless of how they are submitted.

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.
