|Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive Arrested in Houston
AUSTIN, May 15, 2017 - David Lee Gonzales, 40, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive, is now in custody after turning himself in on Tuesday in Houston. Gonzales, who is a Tango Blast Houstone gang member, was wanted for parole violation. The arrest was not the result of a tip, and no reward will be paid.
In 2005, Gonzales was arrested in Pasadena, Texas, after he burglarized a residence and physically assaulted a man, causing serious bodily injury. He was convicted of burglary of habitation-committed aggravated assault and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Gonzales' criminal history also includes robbery, possession of marijuana and evading arrest.
So far in 2017, DPS and other agencies have arrested eight Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including three sex offenders and five gang members, and $27,500 in rewards have been paid for tips that resulted in arrests.
To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the five following methods:
All tips are 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. 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.
