AUSTIN, TX (News Release) - Sean Michael Price, 27, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, has been captured by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) in Tyler. An investigation led DPS Criminal Investigations Division agents and Highway Patrol troopers to a Tyler residence where the suspect was arrested for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender and Probation Violation on Monday afternoon.

Price's last known residence was in Henderson County, and a Failure to Register as a Sex Offender warrant was issued by the Gun Barrel City Police Department in April. Price was originally convicted of Rape of a Child in the state of Washington in 2001. Since no tip from the public was involved, no reward will be paid. To view Price's captured bulletin, visit: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=137.

This year DPS and other agencies have arrested 17 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including 11 gang members. Texas Crime Stoppers, funded by the Governor's Criminal Justice Division, has paid a total of $40,500 in rewards for tips that have led to an arrest in 2012.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives featured in the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program. You can find the current lists—with photos—on the DPS website at http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.

Anyone with information can provide anonymous tips in four different ways:

Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).

Text the letters DPS—followed by your tip—to 274637 (CRIMES) from your cell phone.

Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture.

Submit a Facebook tip at http://www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted by clicking the "SUBMIT A TIP" link (under the "About" section).

All calls, texts, e-mails and Facebook messages are anonymous.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.

    More than a few tar-covered tires are hanging on to the parking lot of a Lufkin tire shop.  On August 31, newly laid asphalt on Loop 287 started sticking to tires of those driving, leaving many of the cars un-driveable. As of Friday, the Texas Department of Transportation hadn't come out with an official cause for the incident, but that hasn't stopped over 600 people from filing claims with them.
