Bobby Joe Flores, Jr.
AUSTIN – The reward for Texas Ten Most Wanted Sex Offender Bobby Joe Flores, Jr., who’s this month’s featured fugitive, has been increased to $6,000 for information leading to his arrest if DPS receives tips during January. Flores, 34, is wanted for continuous sexual abuse of a young child and failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. All information is guaranteed to be anonymous.
Officials had wanted Flores of Duncanville since October of 2019 when the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for his arrest for continuous sexual abuse of a young child. The Duncanville Police Department also has wanted him for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
In 2008, a court convicted Flores of child molesting/intercourse involving a one-year-old girl in Indiana. A judge sentenced him to two years in the Indiana Department of Correction. In 2010, a court convicted him of registering as a sex offender in Indiana and sentenced him to 18 months. In addition, they increased his previous sentence to six years. In 2014, Flores moved to Texas, and he was required to register as a sex offender in Duncanville, where he lived.
Flores is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds, with tattoos on his neck, chest, abdomen, arms, and left wrist. He also has scars on his left arm and wrist. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, view Flores’ wanted bulletin.
