Reward Increased to $12,500 for Most Wanted Fugitive
AUSTIN, January 3, 2015 - The reward for Freddie Alaniz, 34, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and this month’s featured fugitive, has been increased to $12,500 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of January. Alaniz is wanted for murder, sexual assault of a child and possession of marijuana. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Alaniz has ties to several Texas towns, including La Pryor (Zavala County), George West (Live Oak County) and Beaumont, as well as Veracruz, Mexico. His criminal history includes assault causing bodily injury, resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated. For more information and updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at:
Alaniz is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs approximately 120 pounds; however, his appearance may have changed significantly (above photo is from 2006). He has tattoos on his left hand, legs, right arm and shoulder.
One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured.
To be eligible for the cash rewards, there are five different ways to provide anonymous tips:
All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted.
