The Texas 10 Most Wanted program is a joint program between the Texas Crime Stoppers and the Texas Department of Public Safety, that identifies select fugitives and wanted sex offenders who pose the most significant threat to public safety in the state. Individuals who provide information leading to the arrest of one of these fugitives or sex offenders can earn a cash reward in the amount designated for each person.

One fugitive or one sex offender will be designated as “Featured”  for each month, during which the reward for information leading to an arrest will be significantly increased.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, anyone with information on these fugitives can provide anonymous tips in three different ways:

  • Call the Texas 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 by clicking the following link: Submit a Tip – Texas Stash House Rewards Program (also available in the “About” section of the Texas 10 Most Wanted Facebook page under “Submit a Tip”.)The Texas Crime Stoppers hotline is open 24 hours a day. Callers’ anonymity is guaranteed by law.
