AUSTIN - The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Santos Francisco Sanchez, 45, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list, and a $5,000 cash reward is now offered for information leading to his capture. The Texas Syndicate gang member has a violent criminal past and is wanted for Parole Violation and Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. All tips can be offered anonymously.

Sanchez was born in Brown County, but has primarily resided in the Tarrant County area, where he also has relatives. He was convicted in the sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl in Fort Worth in 1996, and was required to report to a halfway house after his release from prison in 2003, but he never registered with the La Villa Police Department in Hidalgo County. He has been known to work carpenter jobs.

Sanchez is 5 feet 10 inches tall and was last known to weigh approximately 205 pounds. His tattoos include: dragon/skulls/devils on his left forearm, a heart on his upper left arm, a peacock on his upper right arm and heart/rose on his right forearm.
