It is an unfortunate part of life in Texas, but crimes happen daily in the Lone Star State. Thanks the fine men and women in law enforcement, most suspects are eventually arrested and charged for their crimes. However, some escape justice and go on the run.

Three Down, More To Go

Sadly, there's no shortage of criminals who go into hiding after harming children or murdering people. For everyone we catch, more are out there. All we can do is keep our eyes open and report anything or anyone suspicious.
