Reward Offered for Most Wanted Fugitive from Dallas
AUSTIN –The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Christopher Ricardo Gonzalez, 18, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list. The DPS is offering a cash reward up to $5,000 for information leading to his capture. Gonzalez, affiliated with the Bloods gang, is wanted for aggravated robbery and engaging in organized crime. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Gonzalez primarily has ties to the south Dallas area. Gonzalez, along with a group of suspects, was allegedly involved in some aggravated robbery home invasions that occurred in the Dallas Metroplex from October 2016 through February 2017. His criminal history also includes the unlawful carrying of a weapon, terroristic threats, and evading arrest.
Gonzalez is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 170 pounds. He may also go by the nickname of “Little Chris.” For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=377.
The Governor’s Criminal Justice Division funds Texas Crime Stoppers, offering 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. So far in 2017, Texas Crime Stoppers has paid $48,000 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 at http://www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted, and the DPS provides tipsters with 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 at http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.
