Texas DPS Press Release

The reward for Eusebio DeLeon, 42, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and this month's featured fugitive, has been increased to $10,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of March. DeLeon is wanted for murder and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

DeLeon has ties to Falfurrias and Laredo as well as Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. He has been known to work as a truck driver and may ride a motorcycle. DeLeon is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs approximately 280 pounds and may be known as "Chevo."

For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at: http://dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=270.

One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor's Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured. All calls, texts, emails and Facebook tip messages are anonymous.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, there are five different ways to provide anonymous tips:

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.

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/.

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