From the Texas Department of Public Safety:

AUSTIN, TX - Robert Anthony Lopez, 48, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Tango Blast gang member, is now in custody after being arrested on Friday in San Antonio, and tipsters will be paid $7,500. Lopez has an extensive criminal history that includes aggravated sexual assault of a child, assault causing bodily injury, injury to a disabled person, violation of protective order and prohibited weapons. 

After receiving tips placing Lopez at a San Antonio residence, the Bexar County Sheriff's Office Street Crimes Unit arrived at the location and arrested him. The arrest was the result of two tips, and a total reward of $7,500 will be paid.

 So far in 2013, DPS and other agencies have arrested 19 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including seven gang members, and $34,000 in rewards has been paid for tips that resulted in arrests. The cash rewards are funded by the Governor's Criminal Justice Division.
