The Texas Department of Public Safety has added another fugitive to its Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives list.
Javier Castro, 47, was last seen in Houston.
He is wanted for robbery and failure to comply with sex offender requirements. His criminal history includes convictions for homicide, possession of narcotics, criminal trespass, larceny, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, arson, terroristic threat, assault, robbery and sexual assault.
Texas Crime Stoppers will give up to a $1,000 cash reward to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of any of these fugitives should call 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
The Crime Stoppers hotline is open 24 hours a day. You do not have to give your name when calling. DPS urges caution around these fugitives.
“Any fugitive should be considered armed and dangerous,” said Steven C. McCraw, DPS director. “You should never attempt to apprehend these fugitives yourself.”
DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives to be featured on the Texas Top 10 Most Wanted list. Featured fugitives generally have been accused of committing violent crimes or crimes against children. Investigators are interested in apprehending these fugitives as soon as possible, before they are able to commit additional crimes.
