ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Crime Stoppers of Lufkin is offering a cash reward for any information leading to the arrest of a fugitive wanted on a motion to revoke probation and multiple drug-, theft-, and traffic-related warrants from the Lufkin Municipal Court.

Travis Young, 25, is 6 feet tall, weighs 175 pounds, and has blond hair and blue eyes. Young's revocation of probation warrant is related to Young's arrests for the offenses of theft of metal, wire, or cable and evading arrest.

According to a press release from Lufkin Crime Stoppers, Young has ties to the Port Stanley area of Angelina County. However, his arrest record indicates that he moves through Lufkin and Angelina County.

On June 11, Young allegedly exposed himself to children and adults at the Hanks Creek Swimming Hole on FM 2801. When Angelina County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived on the scene, Young had already fled the area.

However, ACSO were able to get a description of his car from witnesses. Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches said in a previous East Texas News story that his deputies located Young's car on FM 2109 later that evening.

Crime Stoppers of Lufkin received a request to offer a reward for information that assists law enforcement in locating and arresting Travis Royce Young. He's wanted for Revocation of Probation and multiple Municipal Court warrants, and he has fled from several officers attempting to arrest him. Attached are Young's photos and identifying information.

"When our deputies located the vehicle it was driving 60 miles per hour down that FM road," Sanches said. "When the driver saw the deputies he jumped out of the vehicle while it was running."

Young got away, and deputies caught up with him on FM 1669. However, he again managed to escape, Sanches said.
