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, tipsters must provide information to authorities using one of the five following methods:
- Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-252-8477;
- Text the letters “DPS” – followed by a tip – to 274637 (CRIMES) from a cellphone;
- Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive and then clicking on the link under their picture;
- Submit a Facebook tip at facebook.com/texas10mostwanted by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section);

All tips are guaranteed to remain anonymous, regardless of how they are submitted and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.
DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender lists. The current lists with photos are available on the DPS website at dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.
DPS reminds the public to not attempt to apprehend these fugitives as they are considered armed and dangerous.
