Reward Offered for Most Wanted Fugitive, Gang Member from Austin
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Paulo Sandalio Guillen, 31, to the Texas Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, and the DPS is offering a cash reward up to $7,500 for information leading to his capture. Guillen, affiliated with a clique of the Tango Blast gang, is wanted for parole violation and felon in possession of a firearm. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Guillen has been wanted since August 2017 and has ties to Austin (his last known address), San Antonio and Houston. In March 2010 a jury convicted Guillen in Travis County of aggravated assault and burglary of a habitation. Guillen’s criminal history also includes unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, possession of prohibited weapons, and possession of marijuana.
Guillen is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs approximately 160 pounds. He has tattoos of a star on the right side of his head and his lower right leg; “512” behind his right ear; “44” on his upper left cheek; a teardrop on his upper right cheek; and numerous other tattoos on his arms, neck, shoulders, and chest. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin.
Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders. Last year, Texas Crime Stoppers paid $61,000 in total rewards for anonymous 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:
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 by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).
Submit a tip through the DPS Mobile App. The app is currently available for iPhone users on the Apple App Store and Android users on Google Play.
All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted, and the DPS provides tipsters 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. Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
