Texas Most Wanted

Reward Increased to $4,000 for Most Wanted Sex Offender from Houston.

AUSTIN – The reward for Leonard Dee Taylor — a Texas Ten Most Wanted Sex Offender and this month’s featured fugitive — has been increased to $4,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during February. Taylor, 48, is wanted for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements and a parole violation. 

Taylor has been wanted since April 2018, when he fled from his last known address in Houston. He also has ties to Bowie County (Texarkana) and parts of Louisiana. In 2003, Bowie County convicted Taylor on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child after incidents involving two girls, ages 4 and 9. 

Taylor is 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighs approximately 150 pounds, and has tattoos on the tops of both hands. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin. 

One offender from the Texas Ten Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes that the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward pays if the needed information comes in the same month the fugitive is featured. In 2019, Texas Crime Stoppers paid $40,500 in total rewards for anonymous tips that resulted in arrests. 

To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the following methods: 

· Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).

· Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, then clicking on the link under the photo.

· Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section). 

All tips are anonymous, regardless of how they are submitted, and tipsters receive 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 listings — with photos — on the DPS website. 

Please do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.

A reward of up to $5,000 Offered for Houston Fugitive Wanted for Child Trafficking

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Willie James Brumfield, 20, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive list. The DPS offers a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to his capture. Brumfield is wanted for trafficking of a child, compelling prostitution, aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, and evading arrest or detention. 

Officials had wanted Brumfield since March 2018, when he fled from his last known address in Houston. He is known to frequent areas on the west side of Houston, as well as areas in northeastern Fort Bend County. Brumfield also has ties to the New Orleans area. Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering a separate reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to Brumfield’s charging and arrest. 

Brumfield is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs approximately 145 pounds. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin.
