Henderson County, Texas Sheriff Looking for Top 10 Fugitive with $5,000 Reward
Being on the run from police does not seem like fun to me. Constantly ducking every time you hear a siren. Wondering if that acquaintance who's hiding you will turn you in for the reward money. Not being able to get out and enjoy some time with friends in a public setting. Yeah, I would not want any of that. I'm not saying that's what these remaining Top 10 wanted fugitives are having to do but they are having to hide from Texas law enforcement so they don't go to, or back to, jail. That includes a man who committed sexual assault in Henderson County, Texas.
These fugitives are wanted by the Texas Department of Public Safety. The charges range from parole violations, to murder, to failure to register as a sex offender and other offenses. These individuals hail from all corners of the state. Awards for the arrest of these individuals range from $2,000 to $7,500.
These fugitives should be considered Armed and Dangerous! Never try to apprehend a fugitive yourself.
